I wonder if reviewing an album issued more than ten years ago and discontinued can be useful for anyone... Anyhow, here I go with my first CD review for Amazon. I bought this CD to complete my Deacon Blue CD collection to date. I can say that after more than ten years out of this business I started listening DB again more or less, and also, ten yars ago. That's what happens when you grow old, you start talking about ten years periods of time so easily that it scares! Since then, DB has returned to the place where they should have always been, and since then, they are one of my all time favourite bands. This guys music is so addictive and damnly good that stands the test of time perfectly. This CD combines a good selection of songs, not major hits, but good songs like The Day Jackie Jumped The Jail or any other from their previous works with b-sides, rarities and some new songs in equal proportion, that's why I finally decided to get one copy. And the mix works, much better than if they had chosen, as it is usual, just a selection of their hits. In the new songs I appreciate an approximation to a more electronic and a bit quieter sound, something that will have its full expression in its 2001 follow-up Homesick. Maybe, if you are now discovering DB, Raintown or Fellow Hoodlums, maybe a better choice, but this handfull of songs may give you a wide-angle vision of their early works and a glympse of their newer songs, that, as I have read in their web, are even being written nowadays.
