I SEE NO ONE PROTEST!!!,
This review is from: Protest Songs (Audio CD)
this was suppose to be the follow up to "steve mcqueen" but was shelved in favour of "langley park" and only surfaced a few years later as an extra release with no singles and little publicity..still it reached no18 in the top twenty in the album charts....it is the missing link between the two albums..and surpasses "langley park" which although gave commercial success...a lot of the heart seemed to be missing! where the sprouts desperate for success or was it commercial pressure!
still the album is great...ten great tracks! "world awake" and "wicked things" have all the hit quality of "faron young" or "appetite"..."life of surprises" was released as a single as part of the greatest hits package and is one the strongest songs they recorded..full of love, hope and happiness!
"talking scarlett" is brill as is "tiffanys" and the acoustic "dublin"
"diana" could have been written as a song for the lovely princess...i dont know if it was..but is sounds more poignant in retrospect!
a wonderful collection of songs...not as amazing as "steve mcqueen" but one for your collection!
