3.0 out of 5 stars Growing up in a snap-shot...., 30 Mar 2000
Roddy Frame burst onto the music scene courtesy of a small,independent Scottish Record Label called Postcard,and for a brief moment,was championed as a teenage prodigy with talents way too many for such a bairn....The early songs certainly show an emotional depth and tug at the heart strings here and there...Sadly,this was the 80's,and progress, unfortunately,meant getting in big name producers and spending weeks/months achieving big drum sounds! Quality and the special touches get blown away by the sheer gloss and polish of the production...A crying shame,but it has its moments...

5.0 out of 5 stars Light from under the floorboards...., 29 Mar 2000
This review is from: The Correct Use of Soap (Audio CD)
After the remarkable sights aimed for on their last outing (secondhand daylight),and the critical mauling that they undeservedly received..Magazine had obviously had a long cold look at themselves,re-grouped,focused on their strengths,(McGeoghs guitar,Devotos lyrics..)and pulled together to produce a classic of its time.The hook-laden minefield that is Because Youre Frightened is bright,sharp and features a fantastic 2 note guitar refrain that eats into your mind long after its fade-out...Bass-player,Barry Adamson time and time again steals the show with an awesome performance,sustained throughout the whole album...The song Sweetheart Contract is forcibly propelled by his muscular and warm melody-line...A fantastic cover of a Sly Stone song,Thankyou...Shows of the band at the peak of their power and promise,they even offer something that could be classed as a true-love song...A Song from Under the Floorboards,with another guitar line to swoon at...Devoto sounds like a lovelorn insect waiting for the final swat of the magazine...and for guitarist,John McGeogh ,it was,as he quit the band as they floundered...somewhat stranded at their creative zenith...The only way was? You guessed it.
