4.0 out of 5 stars Sneaky...., 12 Dec 2000
This review is from: Little Kix (Audio CD)
This really is a sneaky album. One of those albums that you buy for someone else and end up listening to yourself. That's exactly what happened to me.
As someone who loved "Attack of the Grey Lantern" but never really came to terms with the melting pot that is "Six", I can promise that "Little Kix" keeps the best aspects of each and is a surprisingly easy and well structured listen.
Paul Draper has for the first time opened up his personal life in direct terms and the results are his most arresting lyrics to date, free of the opaqueness and auto-suggestion that have made his words so inaccessible at times on past outings.
The music is widescreen, expansive and slightly 80's retro in feel, with big keyboards and the odd wailing guitar solo courtesy of Chad. The effect is in all honesty timeless pure pop, in the best sense of the word. Stand out tracks are "Until the Next Life" (the best song Mansun have ever done, bar none) and recent single "Electric Man" but to dwell on these alone would be to detract from what is a very complete album.
The critics who incessantly pan this band can't possibly be listening to the songs. It's a quality, well written, articulate and downright sneaky collection.
