This should be the album of the summer,
This review is from: It's Never Been Like That (Audio CD)
How these guys are not huge is beyond me. The first two albums "united' and 'alphabetical' were both brilliant but covered a range of styles that was perhaps just a little too varied for mainstream tastes.
The new CD 'it's never been like that' is just as good as the others but much more consistent. Don't be fooled by the fans whinging about 'all those guitars' - sure, this album has a little less in the way of slick West Coast MOR production values but its packed with catchy hooks and full of charm. It's a real grower and if there is any justice it'll be one of the albums of the summer. Utterly utterly brilliant. They are playing a lot of the festivals this summer - I recommend buying the CD and catching them live.
