Growing up in the 80's in Los Angeles I discovered Sparks during there "Whomp that Sucker" and "Angst in my Pants" New Wave period. After the quality of the next two records dwindled, I kind of lost interest, until a girl I met in London turned me on to "Kimino my House" and "Propaganda". Here was the pure genius of Rock and Pop I'd been looking for! It was a little like Queen,The Sweet and Bowie but weirder and better! Then in the 90's I bought the rest of their records for my collection and "Indiscreet" was the strangest and most glorious one of all. A regal, let them eat cake, kind of record! "Happy Hunting Ground" is a blast of operatic, pop, rock pre-punk madness.!! "In the Future" pre-dates 80's new wave (and their own 80's song "I Predict") and "Tits" is a classic! If you're into Sparks, buy this genius record right away!!

The fifth Sparks album from 1975, and the quality bar is still set extremely high, coming barely a year after their two earlier classics Kimono My House and Propaganda, this album is equally as good as those earlier classics.

If you're into leftfield, quirky, intelligent and often hilarious genre breaking pop music, this is the album for you.

A definite five star must buy, very highly recommended.

And thus endeth Sparks' British (and most commercially successful) era. The final album in their so-called 'Island Trilogy' (even though there was a forth LP for Island Records - Big Beat, the following year) was more varied and self-indulgent than it's predecessors, as if they knew they wouldn't be making another album with this wonderful backing band. Because of it's eclectic nature, it doesn't flow as well as Propaganda or Kimono My House but it's just as strong as those aformentioned albums. My highlights include the brass band-led single Get In The Swing, the frantic Happy Hunting Ground and the bouncy hoedown-esque It Ain't 1918. It's heartening that a record this unique and experimental (albeit with huge pop smarts) could be a (minor) hit. Essential Sparks.

How to begin ?! Well, decades ago when I was a respectable tween over there in Germany, I accidently discovered this furious band sparking loads of musical things in me. The first time I heard Sparks music - back in 1977 - i haven`t heard anything alike before.

Listening to falsetto vocals, dancing on elaborated, highly melodious tunes, packed in rapidly changing sounds and styles nearly knocked me out. This sonic storm vehemently defined my musical preferences and taste to this day.
There`s almost everything in this album`s music. The Meal brothers created a most enjoyable multi-layered soundscape, dominated by powerful chords, lofty vocals and various rock-orchestral sounds, structured and shaped by neck breaking stops, shifts and breaks.

You name it ... a bunch of styles and directions, craftly combined by these masterminds. From proto-punk, new wave bits over glam rock and classical borrowings to swing and jazz ! What a caleidoscope of various musical styles, not to speak of criptic cutting lyrics like in Tits or Looks, Looks, Looks.

The sound of the 2006 remaster benefits from a more differentiated acoustic pattern, even revealing marginal sound features while emphasising the power and punchiness of the dominating instruments. How entertaining !

Trying to describe the music in length and detail would certainly exceed this little review. Only this much: Crashing rock figures, string quartetts, military stomps and meaty beats.The idiosyncratic siblings adress fear of maturity, infidelity as well as sexual frustration, arranged and produced by the talented Tony Visconti. You`d better listen to this skillfully arranged tonal richness.
