5.0 out of 5 stars A Forgotten classic, 1 Sep 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: All Fool's Day (Audio CD)
If you got here you must be curious. Don't miss this chance to purchase one of the finest rock albums (in my view) of all time. From the great opening hook-fest of Just Like Fire Would to the epic melancholy of All Fool's Day via the moody twang of Blues on My Mind this is a real stand out that the band were justifiably proud of when originally released.

5.0 out of 5 stars A forgotten wonder from Australia, 4 Sep 2001
This review is from: All Fool's Day (Audio CD)
Chris Bailey's ludicrously over the top cowpunk drawl is never better suited to this, arguably the Saints' finest album. Always having to lug around the punk baggage-label of 'I'm Stranded' outside of Australia, 'All Fools Day' marks a peak in the band's songwriting. 'Just like Fire Would' is a huge hook-filled opener, 'Temple of the Lord' a brassy stomp, 'Love or Imagination' a twee plucky string verse ensnared my a menacing, broody chorus. High points for me are the moody, Gelb-like desertscape of 'Blues on my Mind' and the epic melancholy of the closing title track that you feel Bailey would have added pipes and drums to if the budget had stretched. I never really got on with other Saints albums, much in the same way that the Church ceased to impress after 'The Blurred Crusade'.However, buy these two albums and I'll say you'll not find a better introduction to great Antipodean rock music, without a Jimmy Barnes mullet in sight.
