Protest Songs rivals 'Steve McQeen' as the sprouts finest work, tracks like pearly gates and talking scarlet are masterpieces that were never releasd as singles, protest songs was actually recorded in 1985 (right after steve McQ) but was not released for another 4 years, I wonder why. All 10 tracks are excellent(you can't that say very often) and show Paddy McAloon to be one of the truly great modern composers. If you appreciate intelligent tuneful music get this Album you will love it forever.

To correct / add to other reviews here - 1) this isn't a collection of B-sides etc, it's a full album project which was shelved in its entirety in favour of "From Langley Park to Memphis". And 2) of COURSE "Diana" is about Diana, Princess of Wales - the lyric "arms that hold sweet William to her breast" should give it away... it's also a fantastically prescient take on media images of the princess and especially interesting when you consider the mawkish cult of sentimental pseudo-worship that sprang up around her after she died.

Other than that - great album, was always well worth a release in its own right. "Dublin" probably the highlight for me. McAloon's chord structuring is every bit as fantastic as his oft-praised lyrical genius. There are apparently 3 more entire Sprout albums which never saw the light of day!

a great album from a time when melodies were king. Paddy Macaloon is one of the best songwriters of my generation, and their records still stand up.

Ye gods. I consider myself a record collector, but here I sit, thoroughly ashamed of myself, because I missed this one ...
I loved 'Steve McQueen' and 'From Langley Park to Memphis' to pieces. I played the vinyl until I wore it out. But I totally missed this one going by. 'Protest Songs' fits absolutely perfectly after 'Steve McQueen', but, despite being recorded in 1985, it was not released until 1989. They must have had their reasons.
I don't find it difficult to transport myself back to 1985. It was a highly significant year in my life for all kinds of reasons. And this sounds to me like the album that's always been missing from my record collection.
Five stars. Five stars. I love it!
