5.0 out of 5 stars I wish there could be more... 25 Mar 2011
Format:MP3 Download
On the Sad Cafe live album Paul Young said "We've been waiting for this, for a year", talking about the Manchester Apollo concert. Well, I've been waiting for the release of this album for what seems like years, and it hasn't disappointed. It's just so sad that this is really the coda to Paul's recording career, a bunch of tracks laid down before his untimely death and featuring several ex-Sad Cafe members such as Ian Wilson, Ashley Mulford and Dave Irving, plus the likes of Paul Carrack, Eric Stewart and Graham Gouldman.
I won't go into details about all the tracks. If you loved Sad Cafe and Paul Young - or even if you like Mike & the Mechanics - you're going to buy this anyway Suffice to say that it's a very Cafe/Mechanics mix of ballads and rockier numbers, with (I think) great production and a great sound. Top tracks for me are Your Shoes, Grace of God (with Paul Carrack) and the quite wonderful Everything - which, vocally, stands up with anything I've heard by Paul - but I get the feeling I'm going to listen to this album rather a lot, so that'll change.
I just wish there could be more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chronicals 29 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
This was worth the wait, the more you listen the better it gets. If you were a fan of Sad Cafe, go out and buy it you wont regret it. Sadly Paul is no longer with us, but his voice is as strong as ever. Sad Cafe are probably the most underated and best live bands ever to come out of Manchester, but they never really got the break and recognition they deserved. Fanx.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! 28 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
This is the album of Paul's material recorded before his death,that we have all heard about but thought we would never hear.Thanks to some amazing efforts from ex band members and friends this has been finished off and sounds superb, a fitting tribute to one of the most criminally underated vocalists and stage front showmen this country has produced.If you like Sad Cafe or Mike & the mechanics this is what you have been waiting for,Buy it you wont regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars final bow. 29 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
How I dreamed that somewhere in this final bow of Pauls there would be a track as good as "loss of innocence" .How pleasing that there are so many quality tracks on this cd.Firstly it only took one day for this to arrive so that was a great bonus as I have had all my day off to get a feel for it.Some very Mechanic type songs "your shoes" being the most obvious but lots of what I would like to think sad cafe would sound like given natural progression.
Considering how this album came about it has a fantastic life about it, rather than some unfinished little ditties found on the studio floor as you may have been forgiven for thinking.Very aptly finished with the haunting "im in heaven again" and the bonus of an unplugged "everyday hurts" recorded in the latter Mechanics years.
I m truely impressed! A huge well done and thankyou to all who made this happen and whom continue to keep the Paul Young and sad cafe names alive.

Dave "Snakey" Williams

5.0 out of 5 stars Chronicle chronicled 26 July 2011
By Will R
Format:Audio CD
Hi World,

I freely admit to not being very aware of Mike & the Mechanic`s musical output beyond the singles played on radio,
or indeed to Paul`s early career from the early 60`s through the 70`s. He was to me the vocalist that set Sad Cafe
apart from the herd in the late 70s/early 80s when they seemed to be on the edge of a decent `chart career`, for want of a better term.

However, as with so many other bands and solo artists, changes of management, record label and band membership slowly dismembered the band, although Paul and Ian Wilson did continue to release noteable material under such adverse conditions.

I am ashamed to admit that for quite a long time I was unaware of Paul`s passing, wondering with each year if there
would be some new Sad Cafe material - until now we find ourselves gifted with Chronicles!

I won`t pretend that every track is great, although the production work on most - in my opinion - is stunning.
Considering that this album is assembled from unfinished works and home demos, with the input of former band-mates and associates, one really does have to wonder at where he would be today were Paul still among us?

Please read the other reviews, but I honestly haven`t heard a better track than `Water now the Seed` in a very long time - if there were active promotion work on it then this rightly would be widely played and recognised for it`s simplicity and poignancy. As for `Here comes the future` - indeed?

Please don`t take my word for it, but do simply trust your ears - download a couple of tracks, or just buy the disc - honestly, I`m not on a percentage!


Will R.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy listening - well worth a listen 14 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am a fan of Mike and The Mechanics, Paul Carrack and from my youth bands such as Sad Cafe, so it perhaps comes as no surprise that I really enjoyed this CD from the late and great Paul Young. There are some superb tracks including appearances from some well known guest vocalists. At the price offered by Amazon, this has to be the bargain of the decade.

5.0 out of 5 stars A poignant reminder of a great singer songwriter 30 May 2011
Format:Audio CD
On first listening I wasn't over excited about this album but it is a definite grower to the point where I absolutely love it now. Paul had the greatest voice and here it sounds as beautiful as ever. There isn't a bad song on this album and I would struggle to say which is my favourite because they all touch me in one way or another. The pared back version of "Every Day Hurts" is a poignant reminder of Paul's great talent and how criminal it was that he and Sad Café never got the worldwide recognition they deserved. Buy it - you won't regret it.
