3.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat disappointing, 23 Sep 2009
This review is from: Four Winds (Audio CD)
Well, one thing is for sure - this is a Lightning Seeds album. The trouble is, where it fits in to everything else Mr Broudie has done. It sits comfortably within the entire body of the Seeds work, but is so flat and dull nothing particularly stands out. I'd never expect to see them reach the dizzy heights (pun intended) of Jollification again, but even their follow up albums to it had some amazing and memorable tracks.

I appreciate the sentiment and soul Broudie has put into this album, but it's just a album that goes nowhere and ultimately doesn't deliver. It's more akin to a collection of B-sides if you ask me.

Pity, but par for the course of just about every new release from bands I like that have been around for more than 10 years. 2009 was meant to be the (return) year of Pop, but it's turned out to be the year of playing it safe.
