5.0 out of 5 stars The title says it all, 31 July 2000
This review is from: Magic Hour (Audio CD)
Cast - what can you say about them? A great singles band who have perhaps not received due credit when it comes to their long players. But Magic Hour deserves to be rated as one of the best albums of the 1990s. First single Beat Mama is rocky and catchy, and deservedly earned a place in the UK Top 10. From there, the album drifts through gorgeous ballads and rocky numbers until the wonderful closing track Hideaway and the hidden instrumental. The highlight for me is the unbelievably beautiful Alien, with a majestic string arrangement that perfectly complements the excellent vocals. John Power has surpassed himself in the writing of this album, and if you have ever liked any song by Cast, do not hesitate to buy this album. I promise you'll love it.
