5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic record. Keep the faith! 2 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
21 years OCS have been going and here they are again with a new record. An incredible collection of songs. So many stand out tracks but Mrs Maylie, Saturday, Just a little bit of love, Rockfield, Fell in love on the street are fabulous. Musically and lyrically perfect. Harry Kidnap (written about Paul Weller's late father) is beautiful and I'm sure the lyrics have brought the great Paul Weller to tears. Village Life and Whats mine is yours are clever songs and remind me of The Beatles. Macca would have been proud of both these songs. The first single Magic Carpet Days is probably the weakest song on the album but still a very good, uplifting song. Old Pair of Jeans and Word are inspired OCS songs and Postal sounds like Cradock just laying down his anger over an amazing guitar backing. The lads head out on a full UK tour shortly and I'm sure the new songs, mixed with their old will remind everyone why they're still going strong. Saturday is a brilliant album and will appeal to old and new fans of the great OCS.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great return to form 29 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD
I'm a long-time OCS fan, but I was a little disappointed with the last two albums. The good news is that Saturday is a great return to form! With every track under four minutes, Saturday is a lively, upbeat album, and most importantly, it sounds like the band is really having fun.

It definitely sounds like OCS, but it's tough to make a direct comparison to their earlier albums. There aren't any standout anthems that I'd call guaranteed singles, like Riverboat or July, and there aren't any epics, like Get Blown Away or When Evil Comes. Although I miss that style a bit, it's not a bad thing that the band are doing things a little differently this time, and the album feels like it's not trying too hard to impress. It's a fun mix of different styles and catchy songs, and it reminds me most of B-sides, Seasides and Freerides.

A few songs are in my favourites already: Mrs Maylie has a fantastic opening that will have you singing for sure, Old Pair of Jeans reminds me of Give Me A Letter but jazzed up to the max, and What's Mine Is Yours has an excellent Beatles vibe.

I'm really enjoying Saturday, and I absolutely recommend it. If, like me, you were a bit disappointed with the last two albums, be sure to give this a try before you write off Ocean Colour Scene.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant OCS! 7 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A superb collection of very catchy, shortish songs, but with great variety and sounds. I read Steve Cradock's comments about this being their 'psychedelic album' and commenting on the White Album. Well what struck me was that it is clearly OCS but quite happily embracing Beatles and 60's influences. I feel The Who in there too! This is a great achievement by the band, hardly a dip throughout. If you like OCS at all, this is a must. And if you don't or don't know them, I'd say it's still a must, a very polished, lively, upbeat album from what is still one of the best British bands around.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't go for that......Go for Saturday!! 4 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
I don't like using the phrase 'back to form' as in this case it's not true, it's just better than the previous three albums!

This is in the same league as Marchin' Already and One From The Modern, and dare I say it Moseley Shoals. The similarities are, as Simon Fowler put it, a White Album-esque collection of songs! He is right, it's all over the place but in a good way. A bit folky, a bit country, a bit poppy, a bit rocky all mixed up with a psychadelic spoon.

Look out for the tracks 'Saturday', 'Sing Children Sing' and 'Just A Little Bit Of Love', i'll be suprised if these are not released as singles and are potential summer anthems.

Mrs Maylie is the albums 'A Day In The Life' and has obvious 60's influences...it's brilliant!

I could write all day about it, but i'm not, i'm going to go listen to it again, you should too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 27 May 2010
Format:Audio CD
Cant sing this albums praises enough, really was a nice surprise for me. Was a fan of some of the older stuff and didnt really expect loads from this but was really pleasantly surprised. every song is great with no fillers, even the weaker songs on the album are still brilliant. The lyrics are amazing and the production is also really good. Good on you OCS!!

4.0 out of 5 stars "My name is Saturday" 26 May 2010
Format:Audio CD
The last two Ocean Colour Scene releases showed promise of a truly great album and with Saturday they have delivered on that promise.

For those unaware of OCS they are a mod rock band that exploded onto the scene in the mid 90's with the blues-rock classic `Moseley Shoals'. While other bands of that period slipped away, OCS continued to release albums with decreasing sales, yet always playing to packed out live crowds. There's no doubt OCS are a live band and Saturday contains the best collection of new material to add to a setlist since their second* album, Marchin' Already.

OCS have always mixed guitar rock with soulful blues tunes and Saturday is no different. 100 floors Of Perception, Mrs. Maylie, Saturday, Sing Children Sing and Rockfield offer full-on rock tracks while Fell In Love On The Street Again and Village Life show Simon Fowler's lyrics at their best. Harry Kidnap, a song about Paul Weller's deceased father / manager is the album standout track, the sweeping orchestra adding a classic touch to this respectful tribute to this `old school' businessman... "We'll get by like we used to. When he used to run the show. He will smile and look youthful. Such a shame he had to go".

I've docked the album one star due to not having the lyrics in the insert and because other retailers offer a download with two extra tracks. I suggest purchasing this CD and getting the other two tracks separately.

* While Marchin' Already is officially their 3rd album, OCS do not acknowledge their self named album that ended up being produced in a style they were not happy with.
