A fantastic collection of songs - pure class!
on 29 November 2012
A fantastic taster for the new album due out next year. I love these FM EPs. They're always great value with a running time longer than many other artist's albums! Credit where credit's due, the guys obviously put as much thought and effort into an EP as they do for their regular albums, even down to the cover artwork and accompanying booklet. With three new recordings, an extended mix and five live recordings this is no mere stop-gap. The title track is a worthy successor to Wildside from 2010's Metropolis. It bodes well for the new album and the extended mix of Only Foolin' is great for chilling out to. The second new track Rainbow's End is quite simply delicious. What to say about Shot In The Dark? It's wonderful to hear the original pre-Ozzy Wildlife version brought back to life and given the full FM treatment, a refreshing change from Ozzy's version, it's a corker! The five live tracks were all recorded at FM's 25th anniversary Indiscreet shows earlier this year and wow! superb quality recordings that instantly transported me back to the emotional night of the London show. Sorry to rub it in if you didn't make it to one of the Indiscreet shows but this EP is the next best thing!
