How on earth have I missed this,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: THE BEST OF [2CD Set] (Audio CD)
I have always been a fan of Wilko's guitar playing, but have to admit I didn't know he made his own albums. After reading the reviews I decided to give it a go, and wow how have I missed this. Thank you to all the other reviewers for pointing it out to me, I'm now adding my 5 stars.
I must admit when I first put it in the cd player I was a little surprised, I had never heard Wilko singing before and must admit his voice did throw me a little. Don't get me wrong it's not an awful voice it just seemed a little odd to me at first, but I stuck with it as his guitar playing is excellent and the whole sound of the band will get you dancing around the room (Ok I lied there, I don't dance around the room as I'm knocking on a bit now) but I bet you cant keep your feet still whilst listening to it.
Once I got to CD2 I was getting used to Wilko's voice and instead of me thinking it was odd , I know started to think it was brilliant and worked perfectly. When you listen to the lyrics and push the guitar at the back of your mind (If you can) you find his voice was made for the songs, the only problem I have with it is, my wife keeps telling me to turn it off as I'm like a kid with his first single, (I just can't stop playing it)
Yep five stars from me too, and I'm glad I found even if the wife isn't.
