5.0 out of 5 stars Most under-rated album of all time, 30 Dec. 2007
This review is from: Mobile Home (Audio CD)
I can't disagree with any of the reviews on here except the one Amazon have done. I agree that the first album contained some absolutely class songs, but I personally found it rather patchy. I remember Crispin being on one of the music shows promoting a video for the new album, and him being such an overblown big head that I seriously considered not buying Mobile Home at all. I presume he was "under the weather" at the time, but luckily I decided to buy it after all, and was then amazed that someone so full of himself was so capable of writing such stunningly sensitive, beautiful music. There are five or six songs on this album that will simply blow you away with the emotion contained in them, and how well they are sung.

Apart from the Amazon review, there are no bad reviews of this album because it is quite simply a lost gem of British rock music, and anyone who is capable of giving music a chance to grow on them(probably not the i-Pod generation who never seem to listen to an album as an entity)will be rewarded with the realisation of what a treasure they have found. Even when I listen to this album after all this time I am still at a loss to understand why it didn't get the recognition it deserved. There are rumours Crispin might be working on a solo album, so all is not lost for the future, as I am sure most of us would be very interested in hearing more from such an undoubted musical talent.
