Those who only remember Prefab Sprout for 'Hot Dogs and Jumping Frogs' do not know what they are missing. The Sprout frontman, Paddy McAloon, is a singer songwriter of exceptional talent and originality. This was the first album I bought of theirs and have never looked back. From the bouncy opening number, the album goes from strength to strength, with only one track 'The Golden Calf', a disappointment. Immerse yourself in the exciting tunes and clever lyrics, for example on 'Cars and Girls', 'Hey Manhatten' and the classic 'I Remember That'. 'Nancy' is a gentle and touching portrait of a marriage which will spin around in your head till you simply must sing out loud. I can't recommend this album too strongly - buy it, you won't be sorry !
