But they were far less successful at putting them into song on the rest of the album, where they seemed to forget the personal intimacy that gave their singles such insurrectionist stake, opting instead for some surprisingly bland sloganeering. The Age of Consent ends with Somervilles ultimate act of centering gay desire, with covers of Donna Summers Need a Man Blues and I Feel Love. To say The Age of Consent is a great album of dance-oriented synth-pop music is to sell it extremely short this is simply a great album, period. Jimmy Somerville's soaring tenor may take some getting used to, but the songs, many of them dealing with homophobia and alienation none more eloquently than Smalltown Boy, are compelling vignettes about the vagaries of life as a gay man.
