5.0 out of 5 stars The best thing they ever done! brilliant!, 17 Jan 2004

This review is from: Thank Christ For The Bomb (Audio CD)
Whilst everyone always raves about 'split' (which first side and 'cherry red' apart was patchy)this is easily their most consistant album. I first heard this when they did a session for Mike Hardings late lamented 'Sounds of the seventies' early evening radio one show (imagine that now!)he had a spot called 'the super solo' and featured Tony McPhee's stunning lead guitar on the title track and i rushed out the next day to check it out. I was not dissapointed. From the short and to-the-point 'strange town' through the atmospheric 'soldier' and the acoustic guitar on 'thank christ' not a track is waisted. McPhees playing is top notch throughout 'eccentric man' has his greatest ever solo and Pete Cruickshank and Ken Pustelnik are a great rhythm section. Lyrically its a bit sixth form, but no worse than any other concept. Great cover as well. The great thing about this is none of the solos out stay their welcome which is unfortunately what let down the later albums. Recommended!
