Lost but maybe not quite a classic. 19 April 2004
By Daddy Shawn - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I love the CD. It's got BOX SET GO which is a great song. The rest aren't as catchy but still good UK pop. The members of Flag of Convenience, Andy Couzens (guitar) and Chris Goodwin (drums) met and joined with vocalist John Matthews and bassist Simon Davies to form the High in 1987. Couzens was earlier in the Stone Roses. If you like Stone Roses, Smiths, Judy Bats, or the Housemartins then maybe you'll find this CD to your liking. I have a feeling though that you wouldn't be here if you hadn't heard BOX SET GO somewhere and was worth it for me to buy the cd JUST for that song. The rest follows nicely.

Worth finding 13 Dec. 2004
By A. Kauffman - Published on
Format: Audio CD
The High's debut album was vastly underappreciated but is an awesome britpop album. If you like the early poppier Stone Roses ("she bangs the drums", "elephant stone", "going down", "bye bye badman"), early Charlatans UK (Some Friendly-era), Thousand Yard Stare, and other 1990's britpop/Madchestor bands, you should check this album out. There are at least 4 or 5 GREAT songs, including "Box Set Go", "Take your time" and my absolute favorite, "Up and Down", the best Stone Roses song that never was a Stone Roses song.

You should be able to find this cd used at many places-- it's worth tracking down. It remains one of my favorites!

Buy, beg or borrow this--you'll thank me later 5 May 2006
By Bifocal Boy - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Listened to "Somewhere Soon" for the first time in a few years--it's still a great album;one of my favorites.Very melodic, think of Stone Roses or maybe Charlatans. Favorite song is "Rather Be Marsanne," but there are honestly no bad songs on this. All the songs seem to tie together and flow from one to the next--no obvious singles mixed with filler. Give it a listen. Should have been huge.

Up and Down, indeed 22 Nov. 2006
By W. W. Sperger - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Like many, I picked this up for "Up and Down" and promptly played that one song over and over without listening to the rest of the album.

My loss.

Some pretty great mood songs complete with the requisite jangly guitars.

I was surprised how good this was once I decided to let it play through. I don't think it merits a 5 star rating but 4 out of 5 ain't bad.

I never knew the Stone Roses connection until reading another guy's review of this album on this space.

I guess it all makes perfect sense, now.

ahh the memories 3 Mar. 2010
By Scott D. Walmsley - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
i was impressed with the distributer. it came in just over a week from dimple records i believe.

i had this on cassette back when it first came out and loved it. it was nice to revisit the old memories while listening to it again. my favorite songs were "take your time", "a minor turn" and "up and down". i remember listening to this album along with the chalatans UK- some friendly and the stone roses. they all had a similar sound and feel. it was a magical time in music and in my life. i wish i could go back in time and relive it all.

first heard of these guys on a box set of cassettes someone bought me for xmas called "just say yes to annother excess" that's where i first heard the charlatans as well.
