Not as good as the debut album but still has some good rock/pop tunes, I like brag and reach for the sky best, though between a rock and a hard place was the hit single.
Worth buying for nostalgia.

Just amazing collection of brilliant tunes. 80's but not dated at all. Every home should have one!! Apparently a new album out this year too.

A Good Buy for Fans 28 Mar. 2006
By Thomas Veil - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Fans of Cutting Crew's debut album, "Broadcast," will want to buy this album. It does not surpass the brilliance of "Broadcast," but "The Scattering" still has much to offer fans of 80s new wave.

The Scattering begins with the energy of "Year in the Wilderness" (analogous, to "Any Colour" in that sense). The one-two punch of the title track, with its appealing Celtic sound, and "Big Noise" recall the dizzy heights of "One For the Mockingbird" and "Life in a Dangerous Time." These are, in my view, the best songs on the album, displaying the energy and passion that made Cutting Crew great. "Between A Rock and a Hard Place" - not to be confused with the Rolling Stones song of the same title - also has some nice energy as well.

"Everything But My Pride" is a more sedate track (in the "Sahara" sense, perhaps) - it reminds me a bit of something Breathe might have produced. "Reach For the Sky" features some nice vocals by Nick Van Eede. "Binkie's Return" reprises the distinct chords of "The Scattering."

On the whole "The Scattering" features a more contemplative Cutting Crew - the balance between high energy songs and more sedate ones leans toward the latter, when this album is compared to "Broadcast." The final track, "Brag" is - I believe - Cutting Crew's first song to feature a piano, accompanied by Van Eede's sorrowful vocals.

This album isn't as stunning as "Broadcast" but it still serves as a showcase of Cutting Crew's talent and vision. By all means, have a listen for yourself.
Surprisingly good 15 April 2010
By Timothy R. Wilcox - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have read various review of their post-Broadcast albums and got the impression that they were lack-luster and overly experimental. I feel that those sentiments do not agree with me. I like this album because the songs are a bit more complex and have more variety of sonic textures and tempos. Track 3, "the Scattering" is quality. The ending section or epilogue is a bit too much but overall if one likes Big Country, U2, Simple Minds, or 80's era- Peter Gabriel this is a good purchase.
Cutting Crews 2nd Cd 28 Sept. 2011
By Jason Jay - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Similiar to the broadcast (the bands best cd) in alot of ways but without any big hits, this cd will grow on you the more you listen to it. If you like the broadcast alot this cd is your best bet of recapturing some of that magic (without listening to the broadcast again). I would reccomend this cd to cutting crew fans who love the broadcast and 80s/soft rock fans.
