The 1981 debut album by Australia’s Church deftly bottlenecks chiming guitars and image-rich (yet ambiguous) worldviews (“Poor tormented automan/Giant pincers for a hand”) with ’60s pop, ’70s punk, and postpunk. Then they let it out in poppy, smart ways. Steve Kilbey is a gifted singer and lyricist, and here he trades on a Jim Carroll–like gray-day purity in that he sounds a lot more innocent (and disconnected) than he really is (though Kilbey isn’t using drug imagery like Carroll). Kilbey's low-register croon and talky persuasiveness effortlessly push meanings beyond simple verse-chorus trappings, though some tunes (like “She Never Said”) detail complicated love plots in simple ways. The slow-burning crescendo of “Is There Where You Live” has to be one of the most nuanced moments in ’80s rock, while “Fighter Pilot … Korean War” and “Bel-Air” share an unshakable sadness. The punchy and tolling “The Unguarded Moment” is absolute power-pop brilliance, while the anthems “Chrome Injury” and “Memories in Future Tense” make arguments in favor of The Church being the era’s best stripped-down rock ’n’ roll band.
