5.0 out of 5 stars Titanic Talent, 7 Aug 2010
This review is from: Titanic Days [2CD] (Audio CD)
Kirsty MacColls talent for a catchy tune and a sharp, cutting lyric does not diminish despite her death being nearly 10 years ago. Titanic Days didn't achieve the success is surely deserved when it was first released (my cassette copy is decidedly dodgy but much loved still!) but that was never Kirsty's fault, just a world obsessed with making a quick buck out of little talent. What Kirsty would make of todays Britain we will sadly never know, but we do know that she would have been a most wise and witty social commentator through her songs and music.

There are many stand out tracks on Titanic Days - it's almost impossible to single out one track for special mention, but "Soho Square" is hearbreakingly sad yet full of hope. It does in 4 and a half minutes what a good book takes 500 pages to do. Lyrically it can make you cry but the music builds gradually and the lyrics cleverly turn till you find yourself smiling through your tears.

The second disc contains some harder to find tracks, each one worthy of a place on the original release, but anyone who remains unmoved by "Dear John" must have a heart of stone. Treat yourself to a standout album by a uniquely British talent and celebrate Kirsty's legacy.
