This album followed on from Ian's collaboration with Crazy Horse on Head Like A Rock and like that album is chocked full of great tunes. Ian's lyrics can be sentimental at times but he sings with such conviction and infuses his songs with lovely humour which more than compensates. The opening track MERSEYBEAST is a classic McNabb effort with scouse humour and tuneful guitars. From there Ian displays real variety in his songs and any fan of 'Blind' era Icicle Works will truly enjoy this too.

I listened through to "You Stone My Soul" on the way in on the tube this morning. That was enough to remind me of all the stuff that I still had to look forward to on the way home. Ian McNabb sings about people you can imagine you've met and got to know, and puts great music behind his words.

I think McNabb got a more rounded group of musicians round him when recording ths album, than he did when laying down "Head Like A Rock", and his songwriting is on a higher level, both lyrically and musically.
There's plenty of accoustic and electric guitars, bluesy harmonica wheezes, and songs that are straightahead rock, but also some that are country and folk music tinged. "Don't Put Your Spell On Me" wouldn't be out of place as the fifth "Head Like A Rock" track with Crazy Horse as backing band.It rocks like a beast.

I was lucky enough to get this with the Bonus Disc recorded at ULU with "the Horse" as backing band as well, and if you ever see this edition, SNAP IT UP, it's even better.

I'll go along with all the other reviewers who proclaim this man's genius. He probably isn't sufficiently packageable for most record companies, he's probably more intelligent than most record company exec's, and he's too free a spirit anyway. Based upon this re-listening, and the reviews of his other albums, I'm going to be looking to get hold of "Waifs And Strays" and "Before All Of This" very soon.
