Francis Dunnery is one of those hidden gems who writes amazing songs without alot of people knowing. When in it bites alot of people became attracted by his guitar playing which is unquestionably good but i don't think anyone expected him to be such a good songwriter. This, his third album finds him in solo form, albeit with a bit of help. what i like about this album is they stripped off the production of fearless and let the songs do the talking-and it really works. There is a rawness to the songs with frank playing drums aswell as guitar. the result is fantastic songs with a nice raw, rocking sound. as a critic of some of his stuff i really don't think there is a poor song on this album. songs don't come much more tender than sunshine, or groovy as rain or shine.
Put simply, if you are fan of the man or a fan of good songcrafting then just buy this album-you will not be dissapointed.now get lost.

This is a good album, but its a long way off the quality of his later album "man", which was the first album of his i heard. This is a decent album, with a couple of really good songs. But the reviews which claim this album posseses a lyrical depth not present in his later work is wide of the mark for me. Its a good album as a i said, but from a lyrical and musical perspective its not amazing. From a songwriting perspective too, this album falls short of "man". Lots of people on here say otherwise, but i would question their credentials.

Francis Dunnery's third album shows him going back yo his roots with a more folky acoustic feel than the previous album 'Fearless.' Dunnery plays all the instruments himself which is a little self-indulgent and also a little stupid as his drumming is not up to much. His guitar playing on the other hand is as good as usual, and nicely understated for such a talent. 'I Believe I can change my world' is lyrically dire but somehow works, and the acoustic 'Sunshine' is the best track since It Bites split. Bizarrely, Frank manages to succeed where Boyzone failed in doing a good version of 'Father and Son.'

THE BEST ALBUM EVER! 12 Feb. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This isn't just a die-hard fan pumping up a mediocre record here. "Tall Blonde Helicopter" is a criminally underrated, ignored album -- something likely to get lost in the deluge of crap that record companies are dumping into the record stores these days. I listen to a lot of records -- I review them for a living -- and this one still ranks near the top. I've turned all my friends on to this gem. Buy it, borrow it, steal it ... It's a classic.

Anyone who hears this CD will give it 5 STARS ! 4 Aug. 2000
By "curtisreid1" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Francis' CD TALL BLONDE HELICOPTER takes no time to get ya! From the opening power chord chunk and vocal of 48 hours, you are hooked. It's all over! Great songwriting, his arrangements go from so simple and basic to grand diossio (sic). Raw and very emotional, this CD should be on the list of everyone's MUST HAVE. I first heard Francis from my being a JETHRO TULL collector. He released a cover version of LIVING IN THE PAST. I listened to the rest of the promo CD and loved it. FEARLESS is also a very strong contender in more of a modern R 'n B style. TALL BLONDE HELICOPTER has a bit more of a guitaristic approach. LET'S GO SEE is a fine release but seemed to take a little time to see where he's goin with it and would not be a recommendation for a first time FRANCIS DUNNERY fan. I don't know much about earlier stuff ( IT BITES/ROBERT PLANT) but would love to hear some. There is a live UK only release I would love to hear also! Well once more, this CD is a MUST HAVE for any fan of music. Go to India to look on top!

great album 29 July 2000
By EDS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Francis Dunnery's music should be heard by all. He writes such amazing songs, it is a shame he is not on the radio. If you have not heard of Francis Dunnery, please give his music a listen too. You will find yourself singing along with it very, very soon. His music is THAT good. Check out "Let's go do what happens" and "Fearless" also.

Sublime 1 Jun. 2006
By M. Pacheco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I came across thsi album by chance in a record store in LA during a short trip back in '95 or so. Dunnery has created a masterpiece that he will probably never equal or at least surpass. This is at the same time soulfull, poetic, and edgy. A comparison with Dylan is appropriate, although I feel that Dunnery's music here is more approachable and perhaps more honest. He has an expressive voice and the songs are unusual and smart, without being over contrived. Most of them slide down into the brain effortlessly. His guitar playing is fine too. His "Father & Son" is actually better than Cat Stevens'. "Too Much Saturn" is one of my favorite songs ever.

Original music: Inspires soul searching, real living & humor 1 Nov. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Francis Dunnery takes his listener to new realms with his orignal cuts on Tall Blonde Helicopter. The music stands on its own ... add his lyrics -- a mix of words that comment on the human race as we know it (sometimes as only Dunnery knows it) -- and the result inspires soul searching and humor. He's strong on the guitar and his voice is clear. "Too Much Saturn" is a favorite as is "I Believe I Can Change My World" -- both give the listener something to think about while tapping their toes and swaying their hips. His remake of Cat Stevens' "Father and Son" sounds new ... something the "kids" of the '90s will like. Tall Blonde Helicopter is Dunnery's break ... and proves his talent has grown and is growing.
