5.0 out of 5 stars The quirky return of one of Britain's best solo artists....
The 3rd solo album from Tery Hall is released on Damon Albarn's Honest John label,who released Albarn's world music album 'Mali Music' last year. Long time friend Albarn encouraged Hall to make another solo album and it was Hall�s own growing interest in Jewish and Arabic music that led him to produce this multicultural diverse album that is very different to his...

2.0 out of 5 stars The Hour of Two Highlights
My musical christening was granted to me by Terry Hall as the deadpan singer in The Specials and although it took some time for me to forgive him for breaking up the band the second Fun Boy Three album and first Colourfield album convinced me to put my trust in Terry and allow him to take me on whatever musical journey he saw fit.

1.0 out of 5 stars what utter tosh., 31 July 2003
Ward-Minter (British Virgin Islands) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hour Of Two Lights (Audio CD)
When people say they are a fan of an artist, they may have a few CD's, may have seen them live once or twice or had some kind of school boy/girl crush on them. When it come to Terry Hall I am a true fan and have "literally" everything possible by the man and his associated bands.

I can truthfully say this CD is quite awful. Hall is absent from much of he album and instead we are subjected to mind numbing dirges of ethnic orientated sound that is sub the worst curry house you have ever been in.

It retains nothing of the raw SKA sound that has been mentioned elsewhere, nothing of the cheekiness of Fun Boy Three and takes nowt from the heavenly Colourfield. Further the tight production of Vegas and the sublime solo outings is just simply missing.

I would assume that collectivists and completists like myself would still purchase this, but to the casual buyer unaware of the Coventry treasure please opt for earlier material.
