The hits on this album are too many to count...,
This review is from: The Lights In This Town Are Too Many To Count (Audio CD)
Another treasure courtesy of the brothers Wilson. This 4th album offering from the antipodean-born southerners possesses all the usual melodic crooning along with a slightly new direction. 'The lights in this town are too many to count' gives way to the guitar, and is slightly less keyboard driven. Previously the keyboards/organ have been the foundation of much of the material (and that's no surprise when you hear the talents of ivory-tinkler Julian Wilson).
Love is still the word in Grand Drive's camp, and 'Me & My Star' proclaims: "You want my head examined, but all I want is you. You want my arteries flattened, but all I want to do...", slightly more biting than the ballads that we've become used to, but welcome all the same.
However, 'I Believe in Love', a real return to style, is enough to melt the iciest and most cynical of hearts.
The harmonies are still going strong within this in-offensively rocked-up album, and in true Grand Drive style the closing track (Your Final Hour) is a sleep-inducing lullaby.
For the long standing Grand Drivers, this is a long anticipated and heavenly treat, but we expected nothing less. For those still ignorant to the charms of these folky/country/poppy heads, believe the title of this masterpiece and look no further.
