5.0 out of 5 stars hope in a grey world, 14 Nov. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Friends of Rachel Worth (Audio CD)
It's just not been the same since Forster and Mclennan split up. My final sighting in 1990 was the greatest singer songwriter combo since Lennon & McCartney standing on the front edge of a stage in London , feet on monitors , banging out "Apology Accepted?" as if their lives depended on it. Of course their solo careers turned up some classic songs , as anyone who's seen Forster spellbind an audience with "Danger in the Past" will testify. This album brings together two very well differentiated solo careers. There had always been differences in approach and style - Forster as flamboyant as a cross between Oscar Wilde and Iggy Pop - and McLennan as flamboyant as a plumber's mate , albeit a plumber's mate with a wicked ear for a catchy tune. Somehow they moderated and fed off each other creating a magic that some feel had no equal since the aformentioned Scousers. The F.O.R.W. is like another first album in many ways , the guys finding their way as a duo again , and I think a lot of the songs were already written before they reunited. The talent is obviously undimmed , McLennan's "Magic in Here" is as good as "Batchelor Kisses" and Forster's "German Farmhouse" as devil-may-care as "Draining the Pool" , but I think if they make it to that difficult "2nd Album" then things may get very interesting indeed. Here's hoping.
