Lusher than Duran Duran.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Ciao! - The Best of Lush (Audio CD)
Every student in the 90s would have loved Lush, whether they realised it at the time or not. A soundtrack for a generation, from the shoe-gazing lows to the power-pop highs - I never realised I knew any Lush at all until one day I downloaded an MP3 by accident. Then I realised that these were the songs that were always on at the Indie nights. These were the songs that would click on to the jukebox from time to time in the Union bar. Melody Maker and NME darlings, I tried never to get too involved. I'm older now. I can take that risk.
And this risk is worth it! The girls and boys knew how to write and deliver songs and did it time and time again with perfect style and panache. From the upbeat Hypocrite, to the dry humour of Ladykillers and over to the downward haze of Nothing Natural - point your heart's ear towards this band's music and you'll go on a rollercoaster ride of emotion.
Ciao! Too bad you had to go so soon. But the brightest stars fade in the cloudiness of reason. Lush, a band taken from us before their time was truly over...
