4.0 out of 5 stars Sporadically brilliant, 3 Feb. 2006
This review is from: Return of the Sporadic Rec's (Audio CD)
Currently on my cars CD Changer again - it rarely leaves it for long. Consists of The Return of the Sporadic Recordings (CD1) and the Sporadic Recordings (CD2) - not the most logical order you may say unless you are familiar with way that DC operate!
All the usual DC loveliness - I am listening to For Soph as I write this and the hairs are standing up on my arm, as they always do (and no I'm not in my car - we can all burn CDs and I was so outraged it wasn't on the official DC Best Of I did my own version...)
So here we are, the first DC double album and lots of stuff therin (37 tracks). I have to say it is my favourite album of the modern DC era thanks to the large amount of acoustic guitar and restraint when Vini goes electric, as well as the excellent guest contributions (Eli Rudge, John Metcalfe etc.)
As ever with DC, the quality is variable and there is a rather dire rap thing on CD1 which can at least be skipped over easily thanks to modern technology. Some of the lyrics and themes are recycles from the past - for example if you have Sex & Death you will recognise Returned Love.
Some of the tracks are filler - I quote "done at 3AM in one session, very stoned" but a lot of it is utterly wonderful and the final piece where the DC encounter a Canadian Border Customs official who demands to know what sort of Group DC are before they can enter the USA is hilarious - Avant Garde Jazz Classical of course!
Excellent sleeve notes from Vini, a nice anecdote from Bruce Mitchell about how DC tracks get put together and the usual pretentious rubbish from Anthony H Wilson - apparently in the USA full time now & they are welcome to him...
