5.0 out of 5 stars Mourn My Ignorance..., 22 Dec 2004
This review is from: In from the Cold (Audio CD)
For the best part of four years I arrogantly dismissed this LP as the Prisoners worst....how wrong I was. Listening to it today (indeed at least a couple of times a week still now) it is an extremely criminally overlooked album of musical excellence, albeit a little more "polished" than the other Prisoners LPs.
Hell there's nothing wrong with a bit of Mr. Sheen though and as soon as the brass of "All You Gotta Do Is Say" kicks in you know it's got soul. Check out the vocals on "Deceiving Eye", "The More That I Teach You", "I Know How To Please You" and you will hear one of the very best Soul/RnB singers (Ye Olde Style) this country has seen and heard since the late sixties.
Lots of nods to various Kent Comp LPs and Northern Soulesqueness are evident on a good few of the tracks but there still remains that underlying seedy side provided by the haunting Hammond and ivory experimentations of James Taylor. Listen to the kitchen sink self-scathing lyrics to "Mourn My Health" and ask yourself if you've never felt like that, or the "good riddance" cold heartedness of "Be On Your Way"...great stuff. There's even a Hendrix cover here which, contrary to being a "good ol' filler" is superbly carried off and sits delightfully with the rest of these class tunes...infact has anyone ever heard anyone else do a cover of "Ain't No Tellin'"? Don't think Stevie Ray tried that one did he? And if he had would it have been carried off with the same spirited aplomb? Who cares, this version's good enough.
With a few demos and B sides of equally sound quality tagged on the end of the CD along with the presentation and sleeve notes this is nothing less than a bargain as well as an aural treat to the lugholes. Invest and ingest, and you'll be greatly impressed..I kid you not.
(And they still won't come anywhere near your Pop Star Party...ha ha... that is the sign of a great band).

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Prisoners, 3 Dec 2007

An inspriation for many 90's Indie bands. Beautiful keys from James Taylor. Graham Day's songwriting is very powerful with gutsy vocals, nice Hendrix influenced guitar licks, strong bass and drums. This album is by far the better produced of the Prisoner's releases yet retains the garage rawness in some ways...for me their finest hour! BUY IT NOW!!!

Like all Prisoners albums, this is another one you must add to your collection. A pity that this was their final album.

Prisoners often copied, scandalous, this group never made it its an attempt to take the edge off there garage image, very good album, got it due to hearing there stuff in the 80s and they deleted the album before i had chance, for old mods and the premadchester stuff brings back lot of happy memories anything by this group and the later bands graham day and co are always worth a listen, the best mod unsigned band of the 80s.
