Amazon.co.uk Review

Pop wannabe Finley Quaye emerged from nowhere in 1997 with this debut and claimed to be Tricky's Uncle, much to the latter's disgruntlement. After the commercial and critical success of Maverick A Strike, however, it was a moot point as to whether Tricky would be best known as Finley Quaye's nephew. Maverick A Strike's success was probably down to its providing a rare antidote to the morbid, noir- ish obsessions of contemporaries like Massive Attack; Quaye's vocals are as up, sunny and fresh as the first breath of Spring. Even the downbeat notes struck in the lyrics of "Even After All" and "Ride On And Turn The People On" can't cloud the shining reggae rush of this album, given innumerable citrus twists and techno turns by producers Jonathan Quarmby and Kevin Bacon, held together by a band who demonstrated live their ability to match tightness with a lightness of touch on the likes of "It's Great When We're Together" and "Sweet And Loving Man". --David Stubbs

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
MOV did a great Job with the transparent green Vinyl,
after a good Vinyl Vacuum cleaning Machine it plays Dead Quiet with no pops or clicks. (Flat as all of the Pressings from MOV)
The Cover as always with MOV is too thin, the Lyrics page is simple, and the Vinyl Inner sleeve is OK but I replaced it with Diskeeper Ultimate Audiophile Inner Record Sleeve as I do with all of my Records.

the Sound ?
I always heard this album on a CD and didn't expect much from this release, but it does sound better than the CD.
good separation between the Instruments, the Bass is warm and big but more defined and Good soundstage and Depth.
my guess is that they used High Resolution Audio Files as a source and while some of these sound better and others not so much, this one is an Upgrade.

Highly recommended.

I have always wanted this album. I saw the opportunity to buy on CD. I don't think any of his other album has ever topped this one. A must-buy whether you're a fan or not.

I previously owned this CD but lost it. I absolutely love it. This is a great CD to lift your mood and is very summery. The songs are very well put together and have a distinct sound. Such a fantastic buy still to this day!

A really great album. Very relaxed and chilled with good tunes. I have tried listening to vanguard (another of his albums) but did not enjoy that to any great extent. This is certainly one of my favourite albums.

Taking influences from reggae, hip-hop, soul, funk and pop, Finley Quaye welds it all together with originality and talent. Brilliant.

Its not often that music is made like this - happy and summery. This is a great album to listen to on grey rainy days as the songs will take you away to sunshine and lazy days on the beach.
This guy is a genius - buy his album!
