5.0 out of 5 stars Squeeze are back.
After an absence of 8 years, Squeeze are back together and this is a recording from the 2007 summer tour of the USA.
With no new album to promote, the tracks are selected from the whole range of their career and would be a good introduction to anyone not familiar with some of their later work.

Squeeze have always been a great live band and Tilbrooks superb...

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, but Squeeze can be a lot better than pretty good...
This album is actually quite different from A Round And About - for a start, the sound recording quality is actually a little worse, but on a more positive note the band sounds quite a bit better, even (or maybe, who knows, especially) without Jools Holland.

The choice of tracks is occasionally surprising - they leave out "Labelled With Love" and "Up The...

With no new album to promote, the tracks are selected from the whole range of their career and would be a good introduction to anyone not familiar with some of their later work.

Squeeze have always been a great live band and Tilbrooks superb guitar playing has long been underrated. It has been said that they've enjoyed this tour so much that they will be recording together again in the near future. I think that feeling comes across on this cd.
The package contains a small booklet with a few lines from the band members and where to download 5 more free tracks.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, but Squeeze can be a lot better than pretty good..., 31 Oct 2008

This review is from: Five Live: On Tour In America (Audio CD)
This album is actually quite different from A Round And About - for a start, the sound recording quality is actually a little worse, but on a more positive note the band sounds quite a bit better, even (or maybe, who knows, especially) without Jools Holland.

The choice of tracks is occasionally surprising - they leave out "Labelled With Love" and "Up The Junction" for example and include some forgotten album tracks like "I Think I'm Go Go" - but when they perform well they are truly brilliant. "If I Didn't Love You" is simply superb; "Piccadilly" is excellent; "Take Me I'm Yours" has a real edge to it.

There's no reason to buy this album if you're not already a fan, but that's probably a good thing, because while fans won't be disappointed it is, when all's said and done, 'just' a live album, and not even a complete 'best of'; and I wouldn't like to introduce friends to one of England's best bands of the last 30 years unless it was to their best material, performed and polished with more care than a raw, best-to-be-there crowd-pleasing sing-a-long.

I'd actually give this album more than just three stars, but I wouldn't like to put it up there with four-star albums, of which Squeeze have produced many (and even more which get five stars).

Nice to see John Bentley back, too, especially as it kind of adds a note of validity to the Squeeze brand (last time I saw them live it was Glenn Tilbrook plus backing musicians). Buy this if you already like the band, and want to make your day a little bit brighter.

This review is from: Five Live: On Tour In America (Audio CD)
Be aware that on the track listing it has Messed Around- a great song especially live-as track 11, on the actual CD it's Picadilly; no sign of Messed Around.
