Jordan: The Comeback is Prefab Sprout’s largely successful attempt to embrace the breadth of popular music; wisely reuniting with producer Thomas Dolby, Paddy McAloon freely indulges his myriad ambitions and obsessions to weave a dense, finely textured tapestry closer in spirit and construction to a lavish Broadway musical than to the conventional rock concept LP. Over the course of no less than 19 tracks, McAloon chases his twin preoccupations of religion and celebrity, creating a loose thematic canvas perfect for his expanding musical palette; quickly dispensing with common pop idioms, the album moves from tracks like the samba-styled “Carnival 2000” to the self-explanatory “Jesse James Symphony” and its companion piece “Jesse James Bolero” with remarkable dexterity. Dolby’s atmospheric production lends an even greater visual dimension to the songs, which with their tightly constructed narratives and occasional spoken-word passages seem almost destined to someday reach the stage; indeed, Jordan: The Comeback is like an original cast recording minus the actors, or a rock opera without the silliness and bombast a truly inspired work.
