This review is from: Performance And Cocktails (Audio CD)
After their debut album Word Gets Around, this Welsh trio seemed like a promising group, with their catchy bare-bones sound. Sadly, Kelyl Jones took some of the Rod Stewart comparisons a little too far, resulting in this monstrosity.
Make no mistake - had The Bartender and The Thief not been the first single, this would've flopped - that's the only rally catchy out-n-out classic here. I Wouldn't Believe Your Radio is mroe representative - an embarassing lament completely lacking passion and musicianship. A Minute Longer suffers equally badly, while the piano addition to the final track is ill-advised and does nothing to hide the naffness of the song.
A few moments are more impressive - T-SHirt Suntan roars along at a pretty good pace, Hurry Up And Wait touches the right emotional chords, and She Takes Her Clothes Off is pretty good - but its not enough.
