This review is from: Quid Pro Quo (Audio CD)
This is a fine album by a much-maligned band. Nobody does it like The Quo and this is one of their best albums of recent times (best since Heavy Traffic) to me. I've seen Quo a few times in recent years (every December they are at Nottingham Capital FM Arena)and they are a terrific show STILL. Two Way Traffic got airplay on PlanetRock and that is what made me think about buying this. It sounds like it could come from WAY BACK in their back catalogue but also modern at the same time. By that I don't mean trendy, I just mean it sounds like it is a modern production. To me the the best other tracks are Reality Cheque and Can't See For Looking. The 'new' version of In The Army Now is ok and it is nice to have it included on this CD. I hope that people heard them in concert and talking to Johnnie Walker on Radio2 this week. If you can still catch it on iPlayer give it a go. The delivery was slow by Amazon standards. I don't know where it was shipped from but it took a while. Did they do a deal with Tesco? I've looked at previous reviews just after buying from Amazon and it appears to be the case. Before I bought it online my stepson tried to buy it in a shop (remember those?)for me but HMV and FOPP didn't have it. I wonder how all this affected sales in general.
