This review is from: East Side Story (Audio CD)
Ignore the official reviewer's championing of their hits album. East Side Story is very special. Squeeze had managed to ditch their early pop bombast and sound confidently at ease on this disc. Difford and Tillbrook's songwriting moves to where it's firmest; suburbia. Tiny snapshots of English life, teenage tears, middle-aged angst, old ladies living on memories, fumbling sexual liasons and hard decisions; it's all here. Like country and western but from an objective eye and with strong beaty tunes to back it up. As British as a bus shelter on a wet afternoon but far more enjoyable.
