Biography

It’s 1973 in South London. Teenage friends Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook form the band that will see them dubbed ‘The New Lennon and McCartney’. Over 35 years later, with their legacy intact and as vital as it has ever been, Squeeze are still touring and reminding fans worldwide just why they have left such an indelible impression on the UK’s music scene.

4.0 out of 5 stars DEFINATELY NOT GOING TO POT 18 Feb 2008
Format:Audio CD
1991's PLAY album saw Squeeze signed up to Warner Bros and entering the final phase of their recording career (to date). It was another record full of clever lyrics and smart pop melodies, except this time around the cheerful matiness of early releases was jetissoned in favour of slick production and a more American sound.
PLAY is also Squeeze's darkest record by far (Cosi Fan Tutti a close second) and requires patience and repeated listens to fully understand what messers Difford & Tilbrook were aiming for.
Satisfied and Sunday Street were both lifted as singles - the former a mid-paced mood piece with a distinctly Beatlesque feel, the latter a catchy if rather forced take on English weekend life. But it's the album tracks that really lift PLAY onto the upper teirs of early 90's rock/pop.
Letting Go is a stunning jazz/pop song beautifully performed with a lovely Tilbrook vocal and a wonderfully emotive Difford lyric. Wicked & Cruel is a thundering and sarcastic ode to a soon-to-be X and House Of Love is a woozy piano driven stomper which could have been a single (but wasn't).
If you are looking for another Cool For Cats or Hourglass then this isnt the Squeeze CD for you. If you want a mature, adult orientated rock record with flashes of Beatles/Kinks brilliance then PLAY is well worth hunting down.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Grower 4 Sep 2007
Format:Audio CD
I've always liked Squeeze but didn't like this album on first listen as it is unlike anything else they've done.
I persevered with it because I had tickets to see them live and knew they'd be playing several tracks from the new album. I'm very pleased I did.
Play is one of my favourite albums by anybody ever but I think it needs a few listens to fall in love with it. I believe it's about to be reissued.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Glenn Tilbrok's Favorite Squeeze cd's 20 April 2007
Format:Audio CD
Squeeze "Play" is a fantastically melodic and catchy album, due to lack of promotion it didn't spawn any hits didn't sell well so Reprise droped them (but you didn't promote them!!!) the initial stock of this cd on Reprise dried up leaving it quite a rare cd, now reissued by Wounded Bird, "Play" is one of my favorite Squeeze cd's stand out songs for me are Wicked and Cruel, Gone to the Dogs, House of Love, give it about three plays before you make up your mind, you wont be disappointed you'll be rewarded. Just for the record, Glenn's favorite Squeeze albums are Argy Bargy, East Side Story, Play and Some Fantastic Place.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best... 19 Jan 2011
Format:Audio CD
Although not commercially successful {on part due, again, even with a new record company, with lack of publicity}, this is one of Squeeze's finest, and remains one of Chris and Glenn's faves too. Catchy tunes have always been one of Squeezes' fortes and this album is choc full of them! The brilliant 'Sunday Street' and 'Wicked and Cruel' are well worth buying this album for alone, and my personal favourite 'The Truth' is just a masterpiece. I couldn't recommened this album highly enough, it has to be one of my favourite all-time albums {granted most of which are Squeeze ones anyway, with a few Blondie ones too}!
