5.0 out of 5 stars It may not be fashionable, but it is very good!
Wet Wet Wet: hated by the critics and men who like The Clash. Yet year after year - for twelve, count 'em, twelve long years, Clydebank's finest continued to sell out arenas around the world with their big-voiced melt of soul, rock and pop. Popped In Souled Out is a great album. There are songs on here which will never date - Angel Eyes, Wishing I was Lucky and Sweet...

5.0 out of 5 stars It may not be fashionable, but it is very good!, 15 Aug. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Popped in Souled Out (Audio CD)
Wet Wet Wet: hated by the critics and men who like The Clash. Yet year after year - for twelve, count 'em, twelve long years, Clydebank's finest continued to sell out arenas around the world with their big-voiced melt of soul, rock and pop. Popped In Souled Out is a great album. There are songs on here which will never date - Angel Eyes, Wishing I was Lucky and Sweet Little Mystery among them, and there are tracks which were never singles, but can trouble the heart still - Sonny's Letter, The Moment You Left Me. The sleevenote inside says 'we are first and foremost a a soul band' and Marti, Tommy, Neil and Greme's biggest sin was not fitting neatly into a music industry box, but those who have seen them in concert know their musicianship is great, and their critics are unfounded. Popped In Souled Out led me to infulences including Van Morrison, John Martyn and Willie Mitchell, and helped to shape my music taste. A classic pop album, no doubt about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic debute album from the Glasgow super group, 4 May 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Popped in Souled Out (Audio CD)
This album is a superb debute from a truely magnificent band. The album encludes superb chart releases such as Sweet Little Mystery, Angel Eyes and the smash hit Temtation. All Wets fans should have a copy and if you are not a fan you soon will be on hearing this album as it encapsulates the spirit of soul while at the same time emulating the sound of the eighties .This album has a mixture of songs that will have you tapping your feet one minute and remembering your first love the next. A truely stunning piece of work that will pull your soul in every possible direction. And a worthy addition to any record collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic, 26 Oct. 2000
This review is from: Popped in Souled Out (Audio CD)
Never popular with the critics, who first tried to dismiss them as a teen group, then when that didn't fit, as a group for the old an out of touch, this is nevertheless an excellent album. From the classic singles such as Sweet Little Mystery and Angel Eyes, to the unreleased tracks like I Remember, there are in my opinion no bad songs. One of a small number of albums I never tire of.

If you're 40ish and had long hot summers in the late 80s, this is for you. No-one admits to liking Wet Wet Wet but 'Angel Eyes' and 'Temptation' are far fresher, nuanced and uplifting than anything Take That or Robbie ever cranked out. There's very little angst, no rebellion and the lyrics are off-the-shelf , but this album flies by in the car, or when you need a little reminder of that summer in Magaluf when you were tanned, buff and girls still smiled at you...

This review is from: Popped in Souled Out (Audio CD)
Had Popped in Souled out on vynl but missed hearing the tracks on this so purchased the CD. It was money well spend. Marti and the guys made one of the most memorable LP's ever. The soulful voice of Marti Pellow together with the amazing orchestration and backing from the band make this a very moving and enjoyable CD to listen to. Turn it up loud and appreciate every vocal and chord from one of the most memorable bands to come out of Scotland.

5.0 out of 5 stars This metalhead likes it!, 26 May 2013

This review is from: Popped In Souled Out (MP3 Download)
This was one of my secret pleasures while I was growing up. I was a metalhead (still am). I wasn't 'supposed' to be listening to this, let alone like it. But it's fun and brilliantly performed, and Scottish, and it takes me back to hanging out with good friends on a summer holiday in Glenshee.

I had this on tape, and the only way to tell if it was the original album, a certain song uses a 4 letter word in the lyrics, AND it was there, great album, quick delivery and defo put a big smile on my face, fans of wet wet wet will love this album....

Have really enjoyed listening to this CD. Haven't heard some of the tracks in a long time and listening to it made me realise just how good Wet Wet Wet really are. No follower of this group should be without this CD.
