The White Room

By Iestyn George (March 1991, ? Q Magazine)

**** (4 stars)

The KLF (alias The Timelords, The Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu and The JAMS) are a law unto themselves. Former Brilliant guitarist Jimmy Cauty and pop supremo (Teardrop, Bunnymen manager, solo artist) Bill Drummond have consistently challenged the status quo and defied categorisation over the years. Thus it comes as some surprise that by their own standards, White Room appears to be little more than a collection of remixed tracks from their recent past. Indeed, this would indicate that its release was little more than a cash-in on their new-found success (masquerading as the soundtrack to a film which is still 1 million away from completion), were it not for the strikingly imaginative way in which the duo approached their task. From the awesome vitality of What Time Is Love and 3AM Eternal, the album goes through a seamless transition of pace to the moody guitar twang incorporated on Build A Fire, ending on the gentle ragga-tinged No More Tears. Such is its strength that there is no room for the supremely wry, flop single Kylie Said To Jason. A more subtle form of subterfuge than before, this LP will appeal to recent converts and hard core fans alike. Their time has come.
