5.0 out of 5 stars It's new, it's exciting, get over it!, 27 Sept. 2007
This review is from: The Ideal Condition (Audio CD)
I agree whole heartedly with JimmyX2 - this is a great album, he's done something different and although a couple of tracks are a bit clumsy it works as a whole. Orbital were great and are a soundtrack to many a good memory, but part of the reason they broke up was to give themselves room to experiment. Paul has grasped that better than Phil I think. Change is good, new is good do not be afraid. That said 'Madness and me' is also a tenner well spent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dexy's, 21 Sept. 2007
This review is from: Girls And Weather (Audio CD)
OK let's say it up front - this album owes a lot to Dexy's Midnight Runners BUT it is still a cracking good album. It's a joyful burst of sunshine for the end of a dreadful summer, the singles are great and "don't dumb down" has the makings of a classic. Take a chance on this - you may not be listening to it in 20 years time but you'll be listening to it next summer at max volume while driving down to the coast....especially if the sun decides to shine!

4.0 out of 5 stars Actually very good, 8 Sept. 2007
This review is from: Planet Earth (Audio CD)
OK I'll admit I'm probably still a bit dizzy from seeing Prince live the other night but this is a good album. 'Mr Goodnight' 'Guitar' are a classic Prince songs and the album shows - for the first time in a few years - the genuine diversity of the his talent as a songwriter. It isn't 'Sign o the Times' or 'Around the World in a Day' or 'Lovesexy' but it doesn't have to be to be a fine album. Prince is one of those artists (like Bowie and Dylan) who can't just keep churning out the same album again and again. Enjoy this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gem, 18 Aug. 2007
This review is from: The Who By Numbers (Audio CD)
I first bought this album in 1984 on vinyl and I knew nothing about it. If you only buy one Who album then buy this one (well, maybe this or Who's Next). It's the best example of Townsend as a song-writer without drifting into his occasional bouts of pomposity. "How many friends" "Blue, Red and Grey" Slip Kid" are real nuggets. I think this album falls into that "just before punk" limbo sometimes and gets overlooked which is a shame. Buy this album, it's a bargain and you won't be disappointed.
