Biography

Sniff'n'The Tears came together in 1977 in London. Singer songwriter Paul Roberts had made some demos for a French Record Company in the mid Seventies. The musicians for the demos were put together by drummer Luigi Salvoni who Paul had met through a mutual friend. Two years later Luigi contacted Paul to say he had been listening to the demos and wondered if he could play them to a ... Read more in Amazon's Sniff 'n' the Tears Store

Product Description

* "Downstream", the new Sniff'n'The Tears album, is their first since 2000's "Underground". Joining Paul Roberts are original guitarist Les Davidson and bass player Nick South, plus drummer Richard Marcangelo who played on the 1982 album "The Game's Up" and Robin Langridge on keyboards. Robin played on "Underground" and Paul's two 1980's solo albums. Also featured on accordion and piano is Paul's daughter Caitlin.

* The new record has the freshness of a live performance, coupled with some great new songs. `Snowblind Lovers' has been likened to a meeting of The Rolling Stones with Steely Dan. `Black Money' was written in response to the Iraq war and its aftermath but now has taken on a more contemporary resonance.

* If there is a theme to the new songs it might be the title song `Downstream' that best sums it up. It is that however we try to live our lives events will always conspire to intervene. Part of the album's looser, more live approach is to do with the sheer pleasure the band took in playing together again and a feeling that the time was right.

Format: Audio CD
I have been a fan for many years and the wait for this new record has been well worth it. When I first heard this record I was in tears halfway through. It has real power in both the poetic lyrics and music. The music is consistantly good and old fans will instantly recognise the syle, there is new energy and wisdom, commenting on the current state of affairs in the world. Of the 12 tracks I particularly like tracks 6 and 7, `These Streets' and 'Is it any Wonder'. They have got into my head and I find myself singing them after only a short time of hearing them.
I also like the track co written by Paul Roberts and Nigel Preston,track 3 'St Rapheal', it reminds me of sunny holidays in France.
A vintage Sniff'n'the Tears record so good that I rushed to get copies to give to my friends. Add it to your collection.

Solid Effort 7 July 2011
By tesg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Paul Roberts brings in a few old Sniff cronies for an effort not quite on par with "Underground" (which I absolutely loved), but good nonetheless. I particularly like the guitar solo in "Snowblind Lovers", my favorite track on the album.

It's the signature Sniff 'n' the Tears sound with a bit of maturity. Just like you wanted it.
