Quality pop from 1993,
This review is from: Some Fantastic Place (Audio CD)
This 1993 album was a great return to form for the talented Chris Difford and Glen Tilbrook, more than 15 years and about 12 albums since their 1978 debut. Some Fantastic Place is an engaging album of wry observations and poignant tales of ordinary folk.
Every song tells a story whilst musically the album is diverse and multifaceted. Uptempo numbers like Third Rail and Everything In The World alternate with beautiful ballads like Pinocchio and Images Of Loving. There are no fillers here as the duo's songwriting prowess is displayed throughout the album.
My personal favourites include the title track, a sad song about a lost friend, the soulful ballad Loving You Tonight, the anguished Everything In The World, and the witty Cold Shoulder.
Squeeze paints memorable scenarios in their songs and their intelligent lyrics are set to catchy tunes. Some Fantastic Place contains some of the most authentic and timeless pop music of the early 1990s.
