Superb album packed with songs that could have been singles.,
This review is from: Frestonia (Audio CD)
As Aztec Camera fanatics continue to wonder about the meaning of the title of this album, another mystery is the fact that not one of its ten magnificent songs featured on the subsequent 'Best of' compilation.
The album suffered from a chronic dearth of promotion, as Aztec Camera's final commitment to their WEA contact, and thus the single offering 'Sun' was permitted little opportunity to thrive ; a great shame considering at least six more of the tracks could have feasibly captured the public's imagination.
'Rainy Season, with its oriental piano opening leading to an epic chorus, 'Crazy' and the raucous 'Phenomenal World'should all have been heard by a wider audience, and 'Imperfectly' belies its name in that it does actually appear to be perfect.
Full of his customary superb guitar-playing and intuitive sense of melody,never is the fact that Roddy Frame's achievements have not quite matched his virtuoso talents more clearly epitomised than on Frestonia.
