Music Review

Conscience (1993)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: The Beloved; Genre: Rock

The Beloved's front man, Jon Marsh, comes off as a New Agey Bryan Ferry, purring cosmic, romantic sentiments (like ''Lose yourself in me'') all over his second U.S. album, Conscience. Whereas Ferry infused rock with sensuality, Marsh and his wife-partner, Helena, lace their ethereal mix with house grooves that seduce and hypnotize. Their first video, ''Sweet Harmony,'' features a nude Marsh humming amidst a bevy of bare bohemian babes, all seated in a swirling mist. Music to steam by indeed. B+
