3.0 out of 5 stars Not their best album, 3 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a huge fan of their first two albums and though I was hoping the third would take things in a slightly different direction, I was disappointed. Corrinne Drewrey's voice is great as usual but this sounded over produced and lacked the stylish execution of earlier albums. The fact that it didn't do as well commercially as the other two albums perhaps says that I am not alone. SOS are extremely talented but this LP doesn't do it for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coconut Kid Still Going Strong, 3 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I Wake Up Screaming (Audio CD)
A serious grower, this album is certainly Kid Creole's most interesting work to date. Though I adore Tropical Gangsters, I Wake Up Screaming isn't attempting to ape it (apart from track 2); instead there is an obvious and successful attempt to produce something different. Every track brings something new to the table and the lyrics are as sharp as a pin as usual. I have been playing this daily since I bought it and still want to listen again. Basically, a bloody good album from an exceptionally creative and talented guy.

This is a fantastic album that has originality stamped all over it. Kid Creole haven't released a duff album to date and are atill together. Brilliant!

4.0 out of 5 stars A classic shot of jazz, 29 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bullitt Ost (Audio CD)
A great film composer, this is just another in a long line of classic and memorable pieces of work. Re-recorded, so not as edgy as the soundtrack actually used on the film but still fantastic. Buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dance Classic, 29 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Friends is a dance classic. Every track is a winner and (if you like Shalamar) you won't have a moment's disappointment. The remixes sound quite dated now but the album stands firm as one of the best of its type. Great packaging too. Another wonderful job from BBR.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Barry's best!, 29 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great, powerful, melodic score that makes you wonder why it was unavailable for so long. Now reissued in full, this really is worth purchasing.

This is, in my opinion, one of William's best scores. It is quirky and inventive but highly melodic. This is a limited edition so get it soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic, 29 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In my opinion, this is Visage's best album. Their debut was good but this is darker and harder. Night Train, The Horseman, Anvil, Damned Don't Cry are all perfect and even the understated instrumental, Whispers, is something special.
