5.0 out of 5 stars A modern classic! 20 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album features Paul Oakenfold as the main producer, which was hoped to introduce the bands music to a wider audience. It is now 10 years since it was first produced, and was a major departure from the previous Fellow Hoodlums, where the band concentrated on Glasgow, where there are numerous references.
The tracks are more earthy, and are definately catchy. I would defy anybody not to be humming along to Your Town by the end of the intro!
I feel the tracks are still as fresh as they originally were 10 years ago, and really enjoy listening to the album on the move. It makes a great travelling companion when stuck in traffic!
If you have even the slightest interest in this group, and have been recommended this album, then buy it, you will not be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars WHAT EVER YOU SAY, WHAT CAN YOU SAY. 18 May 2001
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album when it first came out being a huge Deacon Blue fan. After a 2 year gap my favourite band was back. Imagine my surprise when I put it on and discover the band had completey changed their sound. With a more harder rock sound it took me a while to get into the album, but now one of my favourite song is track 8 - fall so freely down. This album is a must for all fans, not a good a Raintown album, the first album, but i doubt if any new one will be. Definately in my top 20 album chart. BUY IT. you won't be sorry.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best 5 Sep 2014
Format:Audio CD
This is not as good as previous issues. If you are a DB fan then definitely worth buying but if not start elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars DB's best album 29 Aug 2002
By Highlander - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A lot of DB fans didn't like this album -- a huge departure from the band's early stuff -- but "Whatever You Say, Say Nothing" is just brilliant, particularly "Bethlehem's Gate." This song alone should put frontman Ricky Ross among the pantheon of rock's greatest songwriters (Springsteen, Young, Dylan, Browne, et al). And "Fall So Freely Down" -- how many rockers have written an edgy but stirringly beautiful song about childbirth? Don't get me wrong: I loved the first albums -- "Raintown" and "Fellow Hoodlums" especially. But there's something about this album that just slaps the soul silly with raw beauty.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but moving away from what they did best 25 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I would put Deacon Blue's sound in with other groups such as 80's EBTG, Prefab Sprout,etc. I fell into them in 1991 while living in Germany. I picked up the hard to find double CD 'Ohh Las Vegas and that was love at first listen. They are melodic, treble filled with poetic words to strenghten the sound. Whatever you say... was apparently their last offering and it had that big america production rock and roll sound and it lost some or most of that musty closeness that earlier works had. If you can find it grab Our Town their greatest hits and if you like this, go back and find all their early stuff. Bands don't sound like this anymore because the world is a changing. My life is better for having listend to Deacon Blue. The song Dignity, actually finds a way to bless the word musically. Unreal
