It's A Shame if you don't have this album
on 8 October 2001
A bright and breezy collection of immaculate acoustic pop, this is one of the finest albums ever made. Why? Three reasons:
1. The opener, "Rockin' Stroll" describes the world from a toddlers point of view, something I never appreciated until I saw the video. This alone makes it a genius record.
2. The whole album clocks in at not much more than 28 minutes (without Mrs Robinson which was added after it became a hit), but crams about 56 stupendous tunes in each of it's twelve tracks (that's a definite guaranteed FACT). Brevity and more tunes than you can shake a stick at- marvellous!
3. Even the addition of a slightly cack-handed version of Mrs Robinson doesn't detract from this albums overall loveliness. It's that fantastic.
A pure melodic pop rush that you'll have on repeat time after time after time- yet still have plenty of time to enjoy the other finer things in life. Life's too short for long records!
This is, quite simply, a glorious, life affirming record.
