Mildly interesting debut....
on 25 August 2006
This album is quite different from OCS's later material and has been mostly disowned by the band, with very few of its songs ever having been played live. Its production and recording was difficult and was followed by a lengthy legal fight with their then record label Fontana so that's perhaps not surprising. Which is a shame as there are some good tracks on here particularly Do Yourself a Favour, which rocks like anything with lots of wah wah guitar. Other good tracks include How About You, Third shade of green and the baggy-sounding Sway.
Worth a listen then if you want to know more about OCS but it certainly sounds nothing like later albums like Moseley Shoals, indeed it's almost as if this album was recorded by another band.
