Reviews And Ratings
The album has gotten numerous rave reviews, critics like Rough Trade have been able to listen and review the album.
Many have called the album reflective of the creator and his work, the music has tones of loneliness and anxiety that a man who is alone has to face.
In addition to this, the music is also diverse ranging wide and venturing far from what the artist had released. Michael also tried to branch out and create new types of music besides the big analog synth.
Similarly, Narc Magazine also rated the album around 3.5/5, stating that the album has all the synth-pop and groove-addled bass that is the signature style of the artist.
The Line Of Best Fit, has also praised the album saying
“Excess is order of the day on Pure Luxury. NZCA LINES, the brainchild of Michael Lovett, continues to engineer undiluted electro-pop – masking the woes of a fractured world under the garb of summer-ready sheen.”
The Name Reflects The Theme of The Album
Pure Luxury, tried to provide listeners with the experience of the extra and the extravagant, he follows the traditional norms of luxury, ones that are of material excess and hype.
Status and money are also one of the central eels given by the album, the title track also depicts luxury right from the get-go but in the unique style Lovett is known for.
The lyrics of the title album also show the extravagance everyone wants, some sarcasm is also thrown into the mix when the lyrics tell how it’s all about scented essential oils, exorbitant sheets, and your social circle.
The latter of the song also discusses how money and luxury get to the head and affects the mentality of someone. The singer also tells how when someone gets to the top that’s all they want, they want more and never want to go back down.
In addition to this, he also uses an analogy of an ivory tower to express the human race’s desire for socioeconomic success.
