Always a superior live performer, Cornwell shows more signs of a mini-renaissance with this album. Far more advanced than most of the Stranglers material produced since 1983, the songs are laden with catchy riffs, whilst some of the tracks, such as "Colours of the Rainbow" and "Lean Back on Me Pal" take an extremely simple basic idea and arrive somewhere fairly spectacular.
There is definitely progress since "Guilty", whilst retaining most of the offbeat strangeness that marks Cornwell from many of his (now predictable) contemporaries. The production is less fussy than previously, allowing for a more guitar-based sound demonstrated well on "Leave Me Alone" and "Putting You in the Shade".
It's a grower

Whilst Guilty was OK, this album sounds more like it's from the 90s, with a more psychedelic sound and less of the dodgy 80s drums and chorus' that marred Guilty. There are 5 or 6 great tunes on here, the rest are so-so (which for anyone else would be good). It reminds me a bit of Weller's 1st album, which is actually a compliment. I would totally recommend this album.

Please Don't Upset The Setting Sun/You'll Only Break A Mood Begun...

HI FI is HUGH CORNWELL's best solo album and his most consistently impressive collection since 1997's GUILTY. Only one song - the arthritic and dreary GINGERBREAD GIRL - is unworthy of inclusion. Production-wise, there's quite a lot going on here but, just occasionally, it fails to live up to its own ambitions and, likewise, our expectations, especially on the more layered numbers such as ONE DAY AT A TIME and ALL THE COLOURS OF THE RAINBOW. Ever since his well-documented split from THE STRANGLERS, Cornwell's recordings, whether intentional or not, have either ditched completely or shied away from anything but the most rudimentary keyboard noodlings, with the majority relegated to a position so far down in the mix as to be of very little use anyway. It kind of feels like a subconscious fear of evoking the incomparable DAVE GREENFIELD and, by extension, his former band. If true, that can hardly be a good thing. Whatever the case, it remains a valid speculation that had there been a more forthright emphasis on the synthetic ivories, HI FI would not now be regarded as merely great, but exceptional. Okay, maybe it's me, but I have this tendency to be over-critical of Hugh Cornwell the solo artist, simply because he belonged to (possibly) the best band of my era. And I really loved 'em. But when he left in 1990, so did I...

Nitpicks and amateur psychology aside, this is still a superb album well worth adding to your collection. BEST SONG: The classy and poignant LAY BACK ON ME PAL.

VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

i found wired to be a bit too jazzy for my tastes, so this offering is a welcome return to what the man does best. hi-lights include "putting you in the shade" "rainbow"( which sounds hendrixesque in a strange way)and "leave me alone" like most of the stranglers solo offerings it does seem to be quite short compared to other artists albums. then again not ever artists can put together such a collection of fine songs. best song: dark side of the room ( a bubbly song that just rolls along) least liked: difficult to say gingerbread girl?? not the best on the album lets say
strangest: miss teazy weezy ( strange wee number but likeable)

Well worth having - only one duff song - Gingerbread Girl. The rest is pretty vintage Cornwell though I am getting rather bored with the "humourous" double entendres. Still he's definitely still got the songwriting skills and the ear for a good melody. Its good to know there's life in the old Wolf yet.
