The Hour of Two Highlights,
This review is from: The Hour Of Two Lights (Audio CD)
My musical christening was granted to me by Terry Hall as the deadpan singer in The Specials and although it took some time for me to forgive him for breaking up the band the second Fun Boy Three album and first Colourfield album convinced me to put my trust in Terry and allow him to take me on whatever musical journey he saw fit. The second Colourfield LP shock my resolve but `Ultra Modern Nursery Rhymes' and `Vegas' steadied the ship and after `Home' and the fantastic `Laugh' I would have followed him anywhere.
This collaboration with Mushtaq on Damon Albarn's Honest Jon's world music record label seemed like a very interesting place to visit and after reading a number of favourable reviews I jumped on board. I hate to admit it but it seems my taste is more conservative than I thought and the traditional Jewish, Arabic and Gypsy musicians jar against my sensibilities and I do find it difficult to listen to this album. Although a very interesting place to visit I would hate to live here. Sorry.
