4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining Mix, 1 Jan. 2013

This review is from: Broadside (Audio CD)
Having had the album for a couple of months I felt I had to edit my first attempt at a review as it didn't do it the credit it deserves.

I can now declare this my favourite BH album, probably the most consistent they've done. Some tracks take a little while to grow but there are enough easy hooks on the likes of 10,000 Miles to keep the listener going in the meantime.

The vocals do get drowned a bit in places but I think overall it's the best-sounding of the albums- fuller somehow than 'Hedonism' which in its attempt to capture the band's live sound at times seemed as though it had been recorded in an empty hall at soundcheck.

'Byker Hill' rocks and 'Woodpile' rolls while 'Usher's Well' surprises'. 'What's the Life of Man' sounds like something off a Tim Burton animation as it's just bonkers, but it is great fun.
