Credo shimmers and shines with the best, but it is far from pretty and vacant. Then again, consider the source. The Human League may make pop music, but it’s pop music with roots in the sophistication of genius work by Roxy Music and David Bowie. It is earnest, sincere, and without a hint of irony and this is refreshing. It’s no wonder pop titans including Lady Gaga, Madonna, Moby, Pet Shop Boys, and Robbie Williams cite The Human League as inspiration and influence. One of the album’s lead singles, “Night People,” is a glorious ode to those who live their lives after hours, beyond the reach of day, in the throes of the perpetual party. With its build up of staunchly arpeggiated bass and the delayed entry of Joanne Catherall’s lead vocal, it is as brilliant as anything The Human League have ever done. The rest of Credo is, plain and simple, hot like fire. If you’ve been waiting for a pop album to change the game, wait no longer. If you’ve been raised on pop music, but are a bit too young to remember the exploits of the Steel City’s pop giants, prepare to be enchanted.
