"Searching For The Face Of Jesus" doesn't quite live up to its intriguing title, but it's a pleasant listen nonetheless. Musically, it sounds a bit like Prefab Sprout. There are a number of references to Elvis in the lyrics. Neil sings in his "high" (falsetto) voice here, but doesn't quite pull it off with his usual finesse.
The "I Get Along" video? Well, it's typical Bruce Weber stuff: lots of pretty young flesh on display.
Now on to the eagerly anticipated B-sides...unfortunately, those fall a bit flat. "Searching for the Face of Jesus" is a rather anemic mid-tempo ballad that chugs along nicely, but really goes nowhere (and don't ask me what the lyrics mean, because I have no idea). "Between Two Islands" is much better. It's a mid-tempo pop song with Spanish-style guitars on it. The song ends on a particularly strong note when Neil weaves in lyrics from Marvin Gaye's "I Want You." However, it is a bit sad to hear a PSB song that needs a sample to be more interesting. Overall, this CD is well worth the price, even though it is not up to par with the PSB's singles collection. Completists, such as myself, will likely be quite satisfied.
