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.

12 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 9 Aug. 2004
Format: Audio CD
This 1993 album was a great return to form for the talented Chris Difford and Glen Tilbrook, more than 15 years and about 12 albums since their 1978 debut. Some Fantastic Place is an engaging album of wry observations and poignant tales of ordinary folk.
Every song tells a story whilst musically the album is diverse and multifaceted. Uptempo numbers like Third Rail and Everything In The World alternate with beautiful ballads like Pinocchio and Images Of Loving. There are no fillers here as the duo's songwriting prowess is displayed throughout the album.
My personal favourites include the title track, a sad song about a lost friend, the soulful ballad Loving You Tonight, the anguished Everything In The World, and the witty Cold Shoulder.
Squeeze paints memorable scenarios in their songs and their intelligent lyrics are set to catchy tunes. Some Fantastic Place contains some of the most authentic and timeless pop music of the early 1990s.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Christopher J. Welch on 9 Mar. 2008
Format: Audio CD
It's fair to say that Squeeze had been in commercial, if not critical decline, since 1987's manic hit single 'Hourglass'. Difford & Tilbrook were determined to release an album that could stand shoulder to shoulder with their finest long players of the early 80's.
The resulting Some Fantastic Place, at least artistically, succeeded with aplomb. The title track is a magnificent gospel inflected Harrisonesque strummer with one of Chris Difford's finest lyrics, 'Third Rail' & 'It's Over' are Beatlesque powerpop and 'Cold Shoulder' a brittle ballad featuring one of Glenn Tilbrook's most accomplished vocals. Paul Carrack adds his soulful voice to the slick 'Loving You Tonight' and his presence on keyboard/backing vocal duties helped to make this line up of Squeeze amongst the finest - both live and in the studio. Bassist Keith Wilkenson gets his time in the spotlight with the self penned calipso flavoured 'True Colours' and final track 'Pinnochio' is a stone cold D&T classic.
Even lesser tracks 'Images Of Loving', 'Talk To Him' and 'Everything In The World' fizz with invention, energy and fully realised crystal clear arrangements.
Squeeze wear their beat-group influences with pride on this album and subsequently it is probably their most accomplished and accessible record of the late 80's & 90's. It goes without saying that the lyrics are excellent and the melodies often sublime.
Fifteen years later it still sounds magnificent. Chris Difford & Glenn Tilbrook are up there with Costello, Davies and Macca - truly great song writers - if you haven't yet discovered the mighty Squeeze then this is some fantastic place to start.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Professor Ballofsky on 14 Aug. 2007
Format: Audio CD
This without doubt the best Squeeze album. Poignant Difford lyrics and beautiful Tilbrook music. There is not a duff track on this album but particular highlights are the title track, Cold Shoulder and Loving You Tonight which has a very soulful performance from Paul Carrack. Total satisfaction guaranteed.

Well, Squeeze did it again with this cracker of an album. Every track is standout wonderful, especially the poignant title track and the brilliant 'Jolly Comes Home' about a relationship on the brink of destruction. Music is wonderful and it is one of those albums you never get bored of listening to!

Chris Difford is one of this country's finest ever poets. The lyrics on the title track alone are worth the purchase price. It's a true story about a sad loss at an all-too-young age... I've been there myself, and this brilliant song was a small part of the grieving and recovery process. But aside from that, it's just the most brilliant, joyously uplifting, piece of songwriting.
