Unlike Meeks, Crosby has no room in his gloomy glam for love, or its rhythms, which is why he is right not to borrow from such danceable dandies as the Pet Shop Boys, who, though lonely, never give up reaching out. There is, however, a pop precedent for his "all dressed up and nowhere to go" music: 30 years ago the sweet, falsetto-crying ballads of the Moments, Delfonics, and Stylistics sang honeyed dreams from a moneyed lonely boy to an equally moneyed lonely girl, sad because the possibility of realizing those dreams was made to sound so hopeless. Crosby's music has the same measure of honey, money, and loneliness. Too bad, though, about those falsetto dreams.
