Gold Chains & Sue Cie When The World Was Our Friend
- Words: Dave Stenton
- Label: Kitty-yo
Gold Chains' hop may be a little less pronounced after hooking up with Sue Cie, but the results are still undeniably hip. Topher La Fata's b-boy leanings were never that overt but, aside from vocals on a couple of tracks, they're all but removed from When The World Was Our Friend. Instead, the pair's disparate influences have led to a discordant disco middleground that proves a perfect partner for Chains' muted musings-Berlin's Vladislav Delay also pitched in during the mix down. "Better Together," the sub-bass-fest and impassioned opening track, is the standout.
