Social messages fused with great music
on 21 December 2001
I think it goes without saying that The Christians were underrated as a band. From the same city that spawned The Beatles this outfit explore timeless issues of social problems, love and hate in classics such as "Harvest For The World", "Ideal World", "Words", and "Bottle". I would think that not everyone wants pop to preach, but when it is done like this then it makes compelling listening. Sadly, The Christians short-lived famne was confined to the late 80s, but with this compilation you are left in no doubt as to why much of todays pop is empty pap.
