Product Description

Following 12 years of solo work, Robert Forster and Grant McLennan surprised faithful fans in 2000 with the much-lauded Friends of Rachel Worth, and the duo have come out swinging again on Bright Yellow, Bright Orange. Forster may have hit his peak here. His wry, tightly crafted stories of human behaviour form the core of the set's strongest songs, highlighted by the brisk and jangly "Too Much of One Thing", the buoyant "Make Her Day" and the organ-adorned "Something for Myself". McLennan, on the other hand, delivers the goods in his usual straight-ahead, verse-chorus-verse fashion, providing an emotional refrain to sink our teeth into on "Poison in the Walls" and a wistful one on the elegiac "Unfinished Business". He seems to be moving in an even more accessible direction, while Forster's work is wrapped in layers that are sheer joy to peel away. Bright Yellow, Bright Orange is further proof that the second half of the Go-Betweens' career is one well worth following. --Lorry Fleming

5.0 out of 5 stars I dont do reviews... 19 Jun 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
... but I cant believe no one has given this five stars yet. No surprises, but if youve hit a groove why change? It sounds like they could carry on making albums like this indefinitely, and I for one hope they do. Pure joy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Its all relative... 20 Nov 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Another fine offering from The Go-Betweens, but lacking in the overall excitement of either ‘The Friends Of Rachel Worth’ or ‘Oceans Apart’.
This album is unlikely to disappoint any existing Go-Between fan, but for ‘entry level’ I’d perhaps start elsewhere and come back to this one later.
Its all relative though - many bands would kill for songs of this quality !

5.0 out of 5 stars One for the faithful 3 Feb 2003
Format:Audio CD
The first thing to say, is that the eighth Go-Betweens album, is the most low-key Go-Betweens album. Yet it is also one of the very best. It is not, like 16 Lovers Lane, bursting with great melodies. Everything here is restrained and considered. Each song weaves its own subtle magic. This is a Go-Betweens album that will sound great on the fiftieth listen, whereas Friends Of Rachel Worth perhaps won't. Not to dismiss the previous album, which was the comeback album, but it had its highs and lows, the clear low being McLennan's vacuous 'Going Blind' (probably Grant's worst ever lyric). The highs were Forster's 'He Lives My Life' and 'When She Sang About Angels', and McLennan's 'Magic In Here' and 'Orpheus Beach'. McLennan showed with those two songs that he was still capable of great songwriting, which he only showed on rare occasions during his solo years. However, it was the B-side of Going Blind - 'Locust Girls' - that really showed that Grant still had the magic. And his five offerings on the new album are amongst the best he's ever done. Any McLennan doubters - and I was one - will be fervent believers after the first listen of the new album. He's writing songs with complete integrity again. They are not drenched in melody, like past efforts, but they are great songs nevertheless. The character spoken of in 'Mrs Morgan' will already be familiar to McLennan aficionados, having been mentioned in the Jack Frost song, 'Trapeze Boy'. Mrs Morgan has been busy since then telling fortunes, then leaking her clients' secrets to all and sundry. One is left to wonder at the meaning of the beautiful, elegiac refrain: 'She never wanted/She never wanted to see the rain'. It's one of Grant's minor masterworks - he has always had the ability to portray touching provincial scenes - think of Cattle And Cane. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure poetry 31 Oct 2004
Format:Audio CD
The lads have excelled themselves once again. First heard the original lineup late 70's at the Waitara Hotel, they had it then - and now with a set of 10 classic tracks the brilliance shines again. What more can we ask? How about a live album and DVD of the London Barbican shows for those back home, please????

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a memorable album.. 10 July 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is not a bad album (none of the GB's albums are), however it's not up to the usual standard we've come to expect from them. There is nothing memorable here, it's more of an inoffensive background album. Easy to listen to while you're doing other things, but it just doesn't stand out.
