This review is from: 18 (Audio CD)
Look, '18' is to 'Play' what 'Rhythm and Stealth' was to 'Leftism' and despite the fact that it got similarly panned it has since stood in its own right as an excellent album. I am sure that '18' will follow. Yes, it is a similar formula to 'Play' but that doesn't somehow make less satisfying to listen to. I'm happy with a 'Play' reprise and there's some excellent stuff on it. I also find it curiously more uplifting than 'Play' which had some dark elements to it.
