Released as the second single from the album 'Nil By Mouth', and featuring a generous 11 tracks, 'Broken Doll' is an experiment in prowess and diversity, and by that, I refer to my surprise (and delight) at an Eleven track single.
The first track on here is the single edit of 'Broken Doll', which for the uninitiated is a slow track somewhere between EBM, Goth, and Darkwave, and I'll give Rich Mills a heap of credit from the word 'go' - his voice echoes that of Andrew Eldrich, without at anytime sounding like a clone. In addition, the track builds up slowly, and the lush production allows a nice rock-ish climax to the song, which makes it very easy to draw a comparison to Gothic Rock.
I always thought that you could summarise GC by loosely mixing Eldrich and Numan with a touch of sexual groove - there are bands that do their own thing, and then there are Global Citizen, who make it quite clear from their album covers that they do nothing by the book. (Why should they?). (Nick Quarm - Brutal Resonance)
