A fickle bunch, we Sprout fans! More glowing reviews for this than LCTWWM ... yet for me, it's not quite up to that standard. Aurally better, since it's more than just demos, but God Watch Over You and Angel of Love from that collection were among the best Sprout songs ever. There is nothing on this perfectly fine collection that hits that spot. But it is good - very good. Paddy on the radio amusingly recounted the tale of how he was gently reminded he'd promised a new album - 'promised' as in contractually obliged! - and flew into the studio in panic. Hearteningly, he shelved another project to do so, so perhaps things are looking up for the thirsty fan. The album suffers a little from some non-ideal sound choices - 'Billy', for example, not enhanced by the clunky harmonica sound on the intro - but that voice, not heard since 2001 but for the acoustic Steve McQueen tracks, is as fine as ever. Not to everone's taste, of course - some of us are *far* too macho to respond to romantic visions - but for others, even those of us old enough to know better, being in love with love still matters (just don't tell the missus, as he wryly notes on the sleeve!).

Just one thing: no lyrics? Again?

The new album has McAloon's gifts for writing, arranging, and performing on full display. This is a more focused and original effort that the last few albums, which were produced in unusual circumstances.

Paddy McAloon at his finest. This is a wonderful album. As good as 'Steve McQueen' and 'Jordan'. I loved 'Andromeda Heights' and 'The Gunman' and 'Lets Change the World' had some highlights but this is on a different level as far as I am concerned. Just hope the guy receives just recognition for his music-actually I just hope he continues to release albums like this. Reaffirms your faith in music whilst trash like the X-factor dominates the charts.

...but another 5 star review here can't do any harm. A selection of beautifully inventive songs. Real instruments are more to the fore here than on 'Lets Change the World with Music'. Best album of 2013 no question.

Nothing difficult. Seems familiar on first hearing but that's a good thing, as it grows from then on and the full variety of all those layers of crimson red becomes more and more apparent....
