Not strange but quality, 8 Jan 2008
I never really had any dealings with this group in the eighties apart from the hit single Strange kind of Love which i loved and it inevitably ended up with me purchasing this album at a later date.
I have to say it is one of the finest in a rather large collection which i own. So good in fact i bought it twice (in error)as i was horified to discover it missing one day.
The guitar rifts are exquisite and James Grant's voice makes his namesake David a poor relation.
The opening track Halleluiah Man has a political edge as after over a decade of Tory rule, they like a lot of us at that time felt like taking a torch to it all.I am pleased they never as this is head and shoulders above anything else from that era.
It is difficult to pick tracks out as they are all superb but gems are Strange Kind OF Love,Walk the last Mile,Inflammable,Jocelyn Square, and Halleluiah man.
Trust me if you have any better albums they will be very few and far between.
The production on this is immense.
Enjoy. I know you will.Quality Quality Quality .
