By the first verse of Here Comes A City you know something very special is happening. This is a fantastic album, the third into their comeback phase and it sees Forster and Mclennan absolutley on top of their game. What they can do with a simple tune and and haunting, spare lyrics goes way beyond the usual confines of modern pop/rock. Highlights: the above Here Comes A City (do I hear echoes of Talking Heads in there?), the beautiful Finding You, Boundary Rider, This Night's For You - I could go on. Not a duff moment in it's all too brief running time.
Bands who reform are just not supposed to sound this good, thankfully no one seems to have mentioned that to any one involved. Stands proud with a magnificent back catalogue. If your a Go-Betweens fanatic - they don't seem to attract casual fans - you'll need this, if you've just heard of them and feel like investigating what all the fuss is about this is as good a place to start as anywhere. Highly recommended
Get the bonus disc while you can, some great live tracks from the Barbican recorded last year and a video thrown in.
