[ELECTRONIC ICONS] Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark has pulled off the rarest of coups in the music world: staging a reunion of its original lineup and producing new music that sounds as vibrant and vital as the group’s well-known work from the ’80s. It certainly helps that the quartet is continuing to mine the same synth-pop influences that inspired its members to join forces in the late ’70s—upcoming album English Electric even features a track co-written by former Kraftwerk member Karl Bartos. Yet this new disc and 2010’s History of Modern have the same warm, steely glow, and a view of the future that is simultaneously skeptical and filled with awe.
