I have been listening to The Sundays for more years then I care to remember. I was introduced to them by a friend I used to know. Sadly I don't see them any more, but if I did, each time we met I would shake them by the hand and thank them for this gift.
It's been reffered to me as "Girls Music" and "Empty Pop", but I don't care! To build a picture of the contrast in my musical tastes I own albums from Luther Van Dross(yes, I know) to the Yeah yeah yeahs. The Sundays aren't my favorite band, but it is close.
I have all of the albums, but this one is my favourite (it flits between RW&A and this one, but only for a very short time!). There isn't a song on the album which isn't beautifully written, played and sang. Two of my favourites would be "Homeward" and "I Can't wait". The melody and lyrics seem to compliment each other in a typically english way, which would rival strawberries and cream. There is no otherway to describe it other then beautiful. It wont kick your a$$, but it will make you have that feeling of innocence, sunshine and roses.
