What can I say? They've done it again - an absolutely fantastic new album from what has to be the most underrated band of the last few years. If you are a fan of real music then you will be hard pressed not to enjoy it. If you're a fan of the Medway sound then you will know exactly what to expect.
Graham Day's songwriting, outstanding soulful voice and power chord to Hendrix-like guitar work takes the band through 14 tracks of brilliance, with Wolf Howard's pounding rhythm, Allan Crockford's Entwhistle-esque basslines and not forgetting Parsley's Hammond organ.
The 60's theme-tune style instrumentals are still there now with an added brass section - brilliant! What next, a full orchestra?
I received this CD yesterday and am on my 8th plus listen now - still with the feeling you used to get in your teens when hearing a fantastic record for the first time and playing it over & over again much to your parent's annoyance!
Music you can really enjoy and lyrics you can relate to - what more could you ask for?

The Solarflares are old. You can see it in their faces. Anyone familiar with the band knows it emerged from reunited core of The Prisoners, who were at their zenith more than 20 years ago. Gentlemen of this age usually (re)discover bossa nova and begin writing melancholy songs reflective of mellower times. This quartet looked their mid-life crisis square in the eye, popped a handful of amphetamines, and smacked it in the face with their guitars. 'Laughing Suns' is a 42 minute maxmimum speed tear through classic, hooky garage power pop, from the opening "Dragging You Down" to the closing "Chatham Town." The record dodges one-dimensionality with the horn-driven instrumental "Moonshine of Your Love," which sounds like early JTQ, while the sitar melody and floating harmonies of "Tender Minds" echoes great psych-pop of old. 'Laughing Suns' gives one hope that Paul Weller would assemble Steve White, Dan Minchella, Mick Talbot and the two blokes who played horns on 'The Gift,' reconnect with his inner 20-year-old, and craft a great British power-pop record.
Men of this age shouldn't be making records like this ... but we're most thankful they are.
If you like The Prisoners, The Creation, John's Children, and the enitre Nuggets II box set, pick this up.

All you need to know is that this album is Fantastic!! Dont delay, buy it today & you will not be disappointed.

It is surely evidence that Graham Day is one of the great singer/songwriters never to be get the recognition that his work with not only the Solarflares, but the Prisoners, Prime movers and now the Gaolers, surely merited.

Not a bad track on this CD...
