5.0 out of 5 stars NOSTALGIC CURIOUSITY HAS ITS REWARDS, 9 Mar. 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: EVERYBODY LOVES A HAPPY ENDING (Audio CD)
Well I have to say that I am well impressed. Whether Roland and Curt's decision to patch up their differences and reform was fuelled by a wish to cash in on the fresh interest in their back catalogue, generated by Michael Andrew's cover of Mad World scaling the heights of Xmas number 1 in 2003, is neither here or there. For what they have contrived here is one of the most melodic and lyrically thought provoking collection of songs you will hear in many a year. The influences of Brian Wilson, The Beatles and Peter Gabriel are perhaps unsurprising, yet definately integral. The echoes of 10CC, A.R.Kane and XTC's Apple Venus volumes are certainly more unexpected, but no less welcome. There is even a hint of classic RnB about the sublime 'Last Days On Earth'. Importantly though, the biggest influence of all is Tears For Fears, both circa and post Curt. Seeds Of Love meets Elemental meets Raoul And The Kings Of Spain. One intriguing, classy and highly listenable trybrid.
