There's a fine line between tribute and pastiche. There have been quite a lot of 80s revival projects knocking about in recent years, but it would be quite remiss of me to say we don't need another one. Certainly not one like Part Time, at least. The David Speck-helmed project has already developed a knack for penning timeless songs, and regardless of the relative lack of originality - what Speck is doing is essentially injecting new life into a time that came before him - the material he has presented so far has been frequently impressive.

2011 debut What Would You Say? hinted at there being much more to come from his project, and its successor sees further growth in the Part Time sound. At times, while listening to the record, you'll be scratching your head thinking, 'wait, where have I heard this before'?', and that's exactly the point.

Speck's voice is as versatile as it needs to be on this sort of material. There are plenty of musical references to the likes of The Cure and The Smiths - indeed, you wouldn't be surprised to learn that Johnny Marr himself played lead guitar on the likes of 'I Won't Be Your Little Secret' - but this sort of indie sensibility is sometimes married to the sort of sugary synth-pop that Speck has already proven himself excellent at.

'Night Drive' features an irresistible hook and a carefree atmosphere that makes it very easy to love. Indeed, that track could serve as the starting point on the album for many listeners, and the title track is in a similar vein, allowing some slightly psychedelic influences to creep in whilst still retaining its bright and infectious sound.

Speck's also written some tracks on this album that could have soundtracked any indie disco way back when, with 'Living in the USA' and 'All My Love and All Your Love (Together We Are Fine)' showing that he certainly knows when to get his groove on. The energy level is kept high throughout, and while there are some tracks that sound a little too shrill - ideally, there would be half as much going on in 'Funny Moods' as there is; a classic case of 'too many cooks spoil the broth' - and some that don't quite hit the mark, like 'Staring at a Gun', which causes the record to sag at a crucial point, just before it hits its stride, there are plenty of things about PDA that are enjoyable.

As the saying goes, 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it'. Speck's sound certainly isn't broken; maybe it needs to be refreshed a little in places, that's all.
