5.0 out of 5 stars The Prisoners under another name? 27 Aug 2003
Format:Audio CD
After listening to the sound bytes I bought the CD with an open mind...I was not disappointed. This could easily be the Prisoners fifth studio album. Graham Day was obviously the man behind the sound which has carried over to the Solarflares. The influences are more varied now but still in line with the late 60's genre. The sound is still the same. Crashing guitar and the heavy hammond. The sound has not changed as such, merely matured. Tracks such as "Feet The Wrong Way Round" sound like early Amen Corner, "Watch from The Shadows" is a cross between The Who and Deep Purple. "Reflections" has the closest Doors organ break you'll hear this century. It never ceases to amaze me how a band can show their influences in such an overt way and yet make the sound their own. Graham Day's songwriting talent has grown and grown. He still makes his digs at the impressarios of the current music scene and the lack of talent also, which is perfectly justified hearing the dross that is about these days and has been since I can remember. Stolen riffs etc yet done in such a way as to own them!
Thirty odd years ago this band would have been in a position to be a major act at Woodstock or the Isle Of Wight. This is modern psych rock. This is real music rather than the contrived rubbish that dominates the current music scene.(How did I write that without swearing!) Approach this with an open mind and expand it. You will not be disappointed.
This is real music. Not for sheep!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is now, so is this! 24 April 2004
By Dinga
Format:Audio CD
Graham Day and his hard drinking troopers third album is an absolutebeauty. The guy seldom disappoints when it comes to putting a good tune toequally intelligent lyrics and the batch of songs which make up the LP areno exception.
The Hendrixesque 'Hold On' is well thought out and pieced together as isthe Northern Soul of 'Feet The Wrong Way Round'which highlights thedangers of dancing on talcum powder! Personal favourites are 'A ThousandLies' and the glorious in your face 45 'You Want Blood' which reallyshould be classed as "classic". The institutional Barry Grayinstrumental,'Girl In A Suitcase' is also quite superb, infact sodeliberately authentic as you would not even realise it was recorded thiscentury.
Although in the eyes of the diehards who like the Prisoners and refuse tobudge off them old copies of The Last Fourfathers this ain't gonna changeyour world but remember, the songs here are penned from the same guy whoreached your head and drank the ocean back in the eighties and they are asnear as dammit to the original formula. "If it ain't broken, why fix it"?.Too bleedin' true mate!

5.0 out of 5 stars For Shame 19 Sep 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Solarflares mix garage rock, power-pop, and freakbeat to usually punishing effect on 'Look What I Made Out Of My Head'. If these guys were 19 and from Detroit, the NME would be in full hype mode, praising the guitar savagery and naming every song an instant classic. As it is, The Solarflares (alongside The Insomniacs) are a class act that somehow just gets classier for the lack of commercial expectation involved. So far and away the best straight up rock and roll band these isles have to offer today that your ears won't believe it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Medway Masters Do It Again! 8 Feb 2003
By Bik - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is the third offering The Solarflares, now with Parsley full time on organ duty and where the first album (Psychadelic Tantrum) was brilliant, the second (That was then and so is this) even better, this belter blows them both out of the water.
The album kicks off with 'State of mind', think of the Fleur de Lys or Fire and you approach the power of this song, superb! This is followed by 'Feet the wrong way round' a wry look at one mans feelings about the embarrasment of trying to dance. The other highlight on side 1 (I have the vinyl copy not c.d.!) is Girl In A Briefcase (think Man in a Suitcase and you'll get it) an excellent instrumental for a 60's spy show which never existed outside Graham Days mind.
Side 2 starts with 'You Want Blood', the current single, again the power of the vocals and musicans shines through, these really are men on top of their game. Highlights on this side include You Hear Drums & Reflections. There really isn't a poor song on this album. No fans of the Prisoners or Prime Movers who are unfamiliar with The Solarflares will be disappointed. The same musical influences are there, The Who, Small Faces, Doors and a plethora of 60's punk outfits, even Pink Floyds Piper at the Gates of Dawn album can be sensed in a couple of numbers. Big Beat could've given a money back guarantee on this. My advice but two copies in case you lose one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! Groovy Mod at its Best! 15 April 2005

Each Solarflares album gets better. This is laden with 60s-style wah-wah guitars, groovy organ, and a tight tambourine-shakin' rhythm section. Calling all mods!
4.0 out of 5 stars I'm a contrarian... 23 Jun 2006
By Vambo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Because I think the best thing The Who ever did was their debut album "My Generation". The raw edge to Pete's guitar, the raspy harmonies between Pete and Roger, the way Keith doesn't sit down and play drums but rather gets behind and wages war with the drum kit...these are what made that album their pinnacle, and why this brand of mod r&b was so exciting.

If this makes you think, "Yeah, you're right," then this Solarflares record is for you. It embodies everything great about The Who's early material. Yet, this is not some mere throw-back--the sound and feel on this record is timeless rather than anachronositc.

Case in point, the instrumental "Girl In A Suitcase" creates the image of Robert Vaughan and Patrick McGoohan running around with guns on television--and faceit, they haven't made programs this good since Robert Vaughan and Patrick McGoohan were running around with guns on telelvision. "Watch From Shadows" and "Reflections" belong on *any* garage compilation worth its salt.

RIYL: early Who, The Creation, The Fleshtones, et al.

One my favorite all time albums. I just had to rebuy it when I couldn't find my copy. How come there was never more from this band?
