Not for manic depressives!
on 8 April 2013
The BBC Review actually sums this cd up = "This profoundly personal album is unlikely to woo passers-by, but loyal, long-time admirers will adore it."
I only have 1 other MCC cd, 'Come On Come On' from 1992, which is a much easier listen than 'Ashes & Roses'. 20 years further on and the voice has become a little monotonous, the content more introspective (which the BBC Review also warned). It's not a bad album, but one it's best to be in the mood to listen to, certainly not one to keep you awake at the wheel on a long drive home.Listen before you buy.
I bought 'Ashes & Roses' (from Amazon) 13/12/12 for £7.30 so the price has been hiked which may reflect the popularity, I guess fans will pay whatever they have to, but at the price now being asked I wouldn't have tried this one.
