Miaow is definately one of The Beautiful souths finest albums. It is not too everyones taste , and shows the extremeties of their lyrics and music.
Hold on , the opening track is a fairly average B.S. song. Many will be familiar with Good as gold, Prettiest eyes and Everybodys talking which all feature on Carry on up the charts. Prettiest eyes may be the most moving song they've written.
The rhythm of Hooligans.... is very catchy, and the 'undergound'feel of Hold me close is captured brilliantly here.
Hidden Jukebox is probably the weakest song on the album. Mini - correct is a good song, but not for the easily offended.
Worthless lie is another one of those cynical songs that is hidden by great melodies
I'm not sure i like the end song, but even so it is very compelling. The raw and emotional Poppy tells of soldiers fighting with reference to 'Beadles about', the old tv program.
However this is an album to own if you're a fan of their style or of great tunes generally.
