4.0 out of 5 stars A surprise but a good surprise it is!, 24 Jan. 2006
This review is from: Red Book (Audio CD)
I have to say when it comes to Texas, I always thought that they lived off the success of one album (White on Blonde). Their releases after this were attempts to recapture that success but never really managed to do so. However after listening to the new album Redbook at a christmas party I was very surprised to hear tracks that stand next to their best on White on Blonde.
Getaway has the Texas formula stamped all over it. However it is tracks such as Sleep, Can't resist, What about us and Cry that really keep your attention. Sleep a duet with Paul Buchanan from the Blue Nile is a warm uplifting song which has the most infectious melody. Can't resist is a more pop/electronic track that surprisingly works well on the album, What about us is almost Human League/Petshop boys sounding but it is a great ballad and sang very well by Miss Spiteri. Lastly Cry is a catchy guitar track that be a good choice for a future single if they want to show the full potential of this album.
I only bought this album after hearing it by chance. It is likely that it's full potential will never be discovered and as a result will disappear into oblivion. So if you have some spare cash and your looking for something different, I would take a chance on Redbook.
