Good stuff, but if you want to hear better seek out Roddy Frame/Aztec Camera.

Ride the Tiger [CD 1]

Price: £1.63

4.0 out of 5 stars Super Furry Animals, 3 Oct. 2014
This review is from: Ride the Tiger [CD 1] (Audio CD)
The mid-1990s was a Golden Age for the CD single. When you bought one from The Boo Radleys (& Teenage Fanclub, Super Furry Animals, & Dodgy), what you actually had was an EP of 4 tracks for £1.99. The singles from the C'mon Kids LP were all great, but Ride the Tiger was my favourite. I read in a music rag of the time that the Boos had committed commercial suicide, but what's not to like - slightly melancholic but sweet sounding verses followed by a catchy uplifting melody & life-affirming lyrics - it still sounds great to me. Vote You is a great B side too. Completists (like me) can get these here as cheap as chips, but for all the rest of you, save even more of your pennies and buy the 2 disk, 2010 version of the C'mon Kids LP, currently available here for £2.99 (+ the £1.26 postage). A steal.

Beautiful, mellow LP this. I'm amazed that some of these tracks weren't saved for a Teenage Fanclub release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant performances by all, 2 July 2014
I film you can watch again, and again, and again, and again. Brilliant performances by all, in an old fashioned (in a good way) movie.

Sting's best LP by a mile. 6 of the tracks were (quality singles) and the 6 album tracks are filler-free.

4.0 out of 5 stars £3 deal (if you've spent a tenner on other items) for the deluxe version of this at HMV Queen St., Cardiff., 2 July 2014
This review is from: Rewind The Film (Audio CD)
My favourite Manics LP. (I couldn't beliave my luck when I got to the till at HMV and discovered that I could pick this up for £3 :) ). Every song on this tickled my music muscle, and the disk of demos is quality too.

Murry The Humps best single. The verses are Last Train To Clarksville. The chorus is superb! (The B-sides are a bonus).

2.0 out of 5 stars Only slightly better than the Living Things LP, 10 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Modern Art (Audio CD)
The album that preceded this was a blinder (Sunshine Lies). This, on the other hand, just doesn't cut the mustard.

I'm going to stick my neck and say that this is Euro's best solo LP to date. That is all!
