LOST BRITISH CLASSIC
on 30 August 2007
First, I want to share my annoyance that this great British debut should only be available as an American import. Secondly, I want to entreat everyone who digs classic British songwriting to check out this album. Kart Wallinger, sometimes wearing his influences on his sleeve (Beatles, Stones, Dylan), has crafted an accomplished debut which just brims with great songs.
Unfortunately, World Party were one of those bands (House Of Love being another notable example) who were swept aside by the shift in taste and sensibilities which produced the acid house and Madchester scenes of the late 80s. Consequently they have remained under-appreciated.
A re-evaluation is well overdue.
