A slow grower...,
This review is from: Yes It's True (Audio CD)
On first listen I wasn't sure if I enjoyed this album, but on subsequent listens I have warmed to it immensely.
It's not as bombastic as people may expect from the Spree - "The Fragile Army", their last 'proper' album, was often bold and outspoken, whereas this seems more subdued in comparison.
But it just takes more of a listen to unlock its delights. Opener "You Don't Know Me" is perhaps the most immediate with sage advice on bullies and backstabbers - "there's always more to you than there are of them". "Heart Talk" reminds me of late 70s Bowie, esp the sax. "Popular by Design" is a definite grower.
So not as immediate as past albums perhaps, but still ultimately rewarding.
