cast return to the sound they do best here. not original, but it doesn't need to be when the melodies are strong. john power sometimes gets criticised for his lyrics, unfairly in my opinion. he touches on mans inhumanity to man but has no answers. but then again neither does anyone else. welcome back cast!

Remember the summer of 1995 and the sound of Britpop. .
Cast were always there but never really visible. These loveable Scousers despite multi- platinum selling albums (including the fastest selling debut album of the time) never really reached the heights they should have or deserved. 17 years on there back after some incestuous affairs on the Liverpool music scene.

Troubled Times sounds like Cast in terms of the vocals and the easily identifiable guitar work, but not in style or spirit. Yes they take from the retro sixties influence that Britpop always did, but it lacks the effervescence of their youth. This is a mature collection of songs that reflects their age and stature (These guys are in their early 40's now).

Sadly they sound like a middle aged band playing in a pub somewhere on a Tuesday night. That's not so say it's bad but the brisk optimism and infectious choruses have gone. Unfortunately you can't really recapture a scene that was so spontaneous and I don't think they are really trying to here. The wide eyes, energy, excitement are now replaced more mundane affairs and acceptance of what life is all about.

Never the less this collection of songs is heartfelt and warming and comes from a group that have gained wisdom through experience and age. The songs and tempo reflect this. When you think about it the audience are going to be ex- brit-popers who are also going to be around the late 30 or early 40 mark. So they should be able to relate.

Cast have never been critical darlings. Even when Britpop was at its peak they were being written off as mere revivalists. But this never affected their popularity, mainly thanks to John Power, a songwriter with a gift for writing radio-friendly melodies.

This I would say is Cast's best offering. Really catchy tunes and the band have got better through time. Could play over and over again

I am completely obsessed with Britpop and the britopo era, the 90's in general was the greatest time for British music ever as far as i'm conerned,

So for these bands such as Cast to be reuinited fills me with nothing other than joy. I am delighted for the band and it was very emotional for me to hear they were back together....so is the album good? the answer is NO..it is tremendous. Buy it and support the band and all Britpop artists that are reformed.

I had the pleasure of drinking with John Power one night in Glasgow after his gig at King tuts, John was a down to earth guy.

I love this band!
