The boy Gedge has written some of the best love songs of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Era. You may dispute this, but I’m right and you’re wrong!‘ John Peel.

The Wedding Present have had eighteen UK Top 40 hit singles… not bad for a band that has, from its inception, stubbornly refused to play the record industry’s game. In 1985 David Lewis Gedge boarded a ... Read more in Amazon's The Wedding Present Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Once again, quality from The Weddoes 31 May 2008
Format:Audio CD
5 star once again! Yes, it's not the same sound as appeared on Tommy, Bizarro or George Best, but the Wedding Present have always evolved and subsequent albums such as Seamonsters, Take Fountain, Saturnalia etc have all had their own unique sound. El Rey is no different in that respect. The one thing that links every album is Gedge's voice and as ever, those classic opening lines are all there. Personal favourite so far, 'Don't Take Me Home Until I'm Drunk'. For any Wedding Present fan, buy it and you won't be disappointed. 'Oh why do you... catch my eye then.. turn away...'!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine blend of 20 years of music 27 May 2008
Format:Audio CD
On first listening to this album, you can see where gedge has responded to regualr calls of reverting back to the old 'jingley-jangley' style that first propelled the wedding repsent onto the music scene. This new album is a fine blend of george best style guitars, the darkness of seamonster and the fun vocals of the newer albums. Definetly recommend this to all new and old wedding present fans but i think this is probably the swan-song album from gedge, who will no doubt turn his hand to music producing and defining new music style for up and coming bands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff! 7 Jun 2008
By Aiden87
Format:Audio CD
I just dont know how The Wedding Present never really hit the big time. This album proves that Gedges songs are better than anything knocking about the charts today. Have you heard Scouting for Girls?? RRRRRRUBISH!!!
The only bad point is the daft start to 'girlfriend'. Dont see the point to it. Its a bit like some of the endings on Take Fountain. They go on a bit but the songs themselves are magic.

4.0 out of 5 stars not their best but well worth getting 29 May 2008
Format:Audio CD
Previous reviewers seem to have given this 5 stars simply because it is a Wedding Present album - a sentiment I whole heartedly concur with as everything Gedge does is in my opinion fantastic. However this album can not be compared to George Best - they have not used "jingly jangly" guitar sound since ... well George Best - nor can it be compared to Seamonsters - their classic/greatest album. At best it is on a par with Saturnalia & Cinerama's Torino. Not as good as Take Fountain but it will still be one of my favourite albums of the year. Boo Boo is the standout track - the Click Click / Don't Touch That Dial of the album.
