5.0 out of 5 stars Matt's Moods, 14 Feb 2007
This review is from: Soul Mining (Audio CD)
I first came to hear The The when I was introduced to 'Uncertain Smile' on 12" version. I was smitten instantly by it's uniqueness and depth. The album version though shorter is as good but it would have been better if the 12" version was included. However, although 'Uncertain Smile' is a stand out track, there are no weaker songs on the CD.

If you are new to The The then this is a good starting point. Buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seventies Classic, 24 May 2005
This review is from: Central Heating (Audio CD)
I can't believe this album has not been previously reviewed!
From start to finish this is a superb collection of songs which will leave the listener satisfied. There's no filler here, the music remains timeless and not particularly dated because it was well produced (Barry Blue) and the lyrics mostly written by Rod Temperton.
I was first introduced to Heatwave in the late seventies when I was beginning to grow out of punk and gravitating towards 'disco'!
I've just replaced the worn out tape with a digitally remastered CD and the sound is fantastic.
Turn the lights down low, chill with a bottle of red and enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Has to be 5 stars, 27 Mar 2005
This review is from: The Platinum Collection (Audio CD)
It has got to be five stars simply because CD's 2 and 3 are superb listening. For that alone it was worth the asking price. I must be honest, I don't play CD1 that much as it represented a more commercial era for the band, I kind of went off them a bit then. Having listened to them since 'Nursery Cryme' onwards it was difficult to get in to them from about '83 onwards when Collins went solo.
The digital remastering is a revelation.......Gabriels voice is raw, crank it up, listen to CD's 2 and 3 in the car on a long journey and take yourself back to a better time.............enjoy.
