You've never heard Misplaced Childhood? Where were you?,
By A Customer
This review is from: Misplaced Childhood (Audio CD)
It seems you really did misplace your childhood... It's an album that by its very existance made growing up a more fulfilling experience... identifying with songs of lost love and memories gone by, and yet leaving the listener with a thoughtfull optimism which is really what makes the album work well as a whole, yet the majority of tracks stand out on their own merits both musically and lyrically.
Unlike other concept albums every song adds to the journey from the starting point "Pseudo Silk Kimono/Kayleigh" to its end "Childhood's End/White Feather", an effortless, beautiful experience.
I definately recommend this album to anyone old enough to remember the singles Kayliegh & Lavender - when you hear them here in context they send shivers down the spine!!
