Okay, let me just get this straight before I start. This is NOT a wet, wet, wet album. It does state to be a wet, wet, wet album and anyone who thinks so by looking at the album cover ... well, quite frankly mite need their eyes tested. This a MARTI PELLOW album. It has him on the cover, not all of the boys. Marti Pellow sings Wet, Wet, Wet. And boy, does he! Obviously being the lead singer in the group his vocals feature quite promiently on all the old tracks but this is something else. And I like it.
I was a little too young to 'get' wet, wet, wet. I liked them. I even LOVED 'Goodnight Girl'. And I LOVE this album. I LOVE it. I love Marti's deep vocals, showing he's in his prime. Those expecting the same songs, sung the same way will be disappointed. True. But those expecting something different, a little older, a little deeper ... this is the album for you.
It has all the old favourites, with new twists that you can enjoy all over again!
This is an album to celebrate Marti's vocal talents. He is more than wet, wet, wet. But he will always be the wee Clydebank boy in many of our hearts.
