You might not find that ultimate Deacon Blue classic on here. Its hard to spot a Dignity, Loaded, Real Gone Kid or Wages Day but it is a well crafted album of very good tracks. If you enjoyed their last album, the Hipsters then this follows in the same vein and you will like this. I am so pleased that this follow up to their last album was less than 2 years wait compared to the gap between Homesick and Hipsters. The group have kept the classic deacon blue sound as time has gone by. It's a shame that there will be no top 20 selling songs here, not because they are not good enough but that these tracks won't get the exposure they deserve. Press play, sit back and enjoy the ride, it's not a high speed roller coaster but let db take you on a journey of magical moments and chilled out places.

1 Bethlehem Begins - First the drums, then piano, guitar and Mr Ross lyrics introduce this upbeat track.
2. For John Muir - celebrates the life and work of conservationist John Muir and is a very good album track.
3. A New House - First single from the album of the same name - Ross classically story telling with the lyrics transporting you into the song -A new job, a new hope, a new start, in a new home
4. An Ocean - Another potential single, Ricky and Lorraine in tandem with a very catchy chorus
5. The Living - A nice track that sits in the middle of the album, a chiming guitar riff compliments the vocals.
6. I wish i was a girl like you - A very likable track with a chorus to stick in your mind
7. Win - A relaxed, laid back track that DB do so well - Its ok to dream it, feel it, maybe even steal it, we can win.
8. Wild - Great intro and typically Deacon Blue
9. March - A possible favorite of mine after a couple of listens

I have to admit to a bit of bias here. Basically Deacon Blue/Ricky Ross can do no wrong in my opinion so I am reviewing this album through rose tinted headphones, if you get my drift. Having said that, if I didn't think this latest release was up to snuff I would have knocked a star or two off, so even being as objective as I can, I still love this album hence the 5 stars.
What I like about the more recent albums and this one in particular is that Deacon Blue have maintained their distinctive style, the eclectic harmonies provided by Lorraine McIntosh, the perceptive lyrics of Mr Ross, the jangly rhythms, the instantly memorable melodies, they even incoprporate strings on tracks such as An Ocean with a rare pizzazz, but they sound bang up to date as they once again that fashion is temporary, class is permanent. I also have to say that Ricky Ross is in excellent voice, maturity obviously suits him, the production is razor sharp and quite frankly, any album that has a song about John Muir, a particular hero of mine, on it was always going to get five stars!. Nevertheless we have such an enjoyable upbeat listening experience here that I cannot recommend it highly enough. For me Deacon Blue are teaching the young whippersnappers out there a bit of a lesson, more power to their elbow.

...This is a different Deacon Blue album, quite different…

I listen anxiously in anticipation of what might lie ahead from the opening chord and then in a rush it begins…but hang on where’s the anticipated moody opening to the first track ‘Bethlehem Begins’? No delicate piano intro or haunting teasing vocal from Ricky? No a thumping rhythmic drum opening which pulsates through the entire track combined with a backdrop Lorraine McIntosh vocal all of which is quite reminiscent to Kate Bush’s ‘Running up the Hill’. The track hums along with a great catchy chorus and plenty of counterpoints, twists and turns which makes this a likely selection for the tour when it kicks off in the autumn.

‘For John Muir’ - I’d already downloaded this a week ago and was therefore pretty familiar with it already. For some reason I think of the ‘Yes’ album ‘90125’ when I listen to this track, I think it’s the lyric line ‘long live perpetual light’ that does it! I like the production on the whole album and this is a good example why, chunky guitars, interesting harmonies, and a fresh funky feel which has a lot more in common with deacon Blue circa 2012 more than the 1987-2001 period.

The single ‘A New House’ has had at least 50 plays in the car as I’ve drove to and from work in the past few days. I just love this track, so joyous and celebratory; it really gets in your head and sticks. The video is just superb and I love the fact we have footage of the band when they were kids. Ricky had rosy cheeks!!

‘The Ocean’ has some great harmonies and is driven by a vibrant string section, punchy and rocking it lifts the spirits and doesn’t let up from the first to the last chord.

So many reviewers of this album seem to be harking back to the days of "Raintown" or the pop of "When The World Knows Your Name". They were twenty-five years ago. Deacon Blue are still Deacon Blue, but their sound is slightly changed, more dense, less blatantly obvious pop hooks. This trend began with "Whatever You Say Say Nothing" and has continued into the group's renaissance in recent years. No-one should be surprised at not quite hearing their (supposed) "classic sound".

This is a "grower" of an album, less instantly appealing than its predecessor, "The Hipsters", but, thankfully, having much better production and general soundscape than the sonic mush that almost destroyed that album. The sound is warmer, bassier and more defined. Songs like "I Wish I Was A Girl Like You", "A New House", the punchy "March" and the melodious "Wild" really seep into one's consciousness. The vocal interaction between Ricky Ross and Lorraine Mackintosh is still top notch and there are, of course, still obvious bits of "typical" Deacon Blue sound to be found. You just need to listen to it several times to get into it. When you do, you will feel the better for it.
