A classic of indie pop,
This review is from: Foxbase Alpha (Audio CD)
I admit it - I was completely suckered by Foxbase Alpha. I loved Only Love Can Break Your Heart and had been waiting for the lp to drop - and what a diverse surprise it was. Their more experimental stuff has aged better than the housey stuff, which is why the bonus disc is such good value. The 5 unreleased demos are just the icing on a very rich cake, including 2 versions of Kiss And Make Up, the brilliant Filthy and the original version of Winter In America (previously known only as a Psychonauts mix on Casino Classics). But the extra tracks complement the original album, which remains a classic of modish cool. It is very much of its time, so it may work better on people who lived it, but this is a very nice definitive deluxe edition type product.
