So good... yet so underrated,
By A Customer
This review is from: A New Flame (Audio CD)
A New Flame by Simply Red is probably my second favourite release by the ginger soul-master of Manchetser, the first being the incredible Stars. The reason why i believe this album is underrated is simply because there is so much exellent music on here which is overlooked. The main few songs that are associated with A New Flame (Its Only Love, If You Don't Know Me By Now and A New Flame) are used to judge the album, while the real, solid tracks are simply overlooked. Songs like Enough and Love Lays Its Tune display the genius talents of Hucknall and Simply Red. A New Flame may be Hucknalls most varied work to date, dabbling in reggae beats in More, going all out pop in Its Only Love, and telling very accurate tales of life in Love Lays Its Tune and Enough. This may not of appealed to the mainstream young generation, but it can be accessed by everyone who enjoys well written pop played by a well crafted band.
