5.0 out of 5 stars Still great, 17 Dec 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Painting It Red (Audio CD)
As someone whose followed the Beautiful South for 7 years now, I eagerly awaited the release of Painting It Red as I do with all their albums. I have to admit, its by no means their best (Miaow still can claim that honour), but Paul and Dave R still manage to write good song after good song and after a few listens the album instantly grew on me. 'You Can Call Me Leisure' is genius, as is 'Hot On The Heels Of Heartbreak' and 'Property Quiz', which nobody else ever seems to mention but it features a great vocal by Paul. It would be nice if they would experiment a bit now and again, but at the end of the day, you always know what to expect with a Beautiful South album and so you never really want them to change. The album hasn't sold very well but so what? Those who have bought it know they've purchased a good album. I saw them live at Brixton last Tuesday (12th Dec), and was suprised by how many old tracks they did. Whether this was due to Jacqui's departure or not I don't know but it would have been nice to have heard some of the new stuff live. But they managed to cope without her well enough (Paul and Dave H singing 'Perfect 10' was a highlight!). It will be interesting to see where they go from here after Jacqui leaving, but you can always guarantee that Paul and Dave R will not stop doing what they are good at - writing great songs.
