The 2010-50 - No.18: Never give up, it's such a wonderful life

"Wonderful Life" - Hurts.

Acclaimed in blogland long before it was commercially released - not once but twice - "Wonderful Life" actually managed to live up to the hype. Hurts provided a very accurate depiction of a sound which not only was 'acceptable in the 80s' but managed to make it totally fresh and relevant to 2010. Typically, their ice-cool approach seemed to gain more appreciation from critics and fans in continental Europe; maybe their image and music is just a little too intense and intelligent for a British audience?
