5.0 out of 5 stars The Funky Party album we've all been waiting for!, 17 Nov 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Wonderland (Audio CD)
From the opening track the charlatans stride confidently back into our lives again. Telling us they are sexy making us feel sexy and ultimately making us wanna dance. For a band who have suffered such horrific tribulation throughout their long career it is amazing they manage to maintain such a high tempo on record indicating that what they give to the listener is definately from the soul. If possible the pure ectasy of the opening six tracks becomes unbearable,yet how can you resist dancing to such amzingly uplifting anthems. Whilst their is an obvious sound to any Charlatans record and influences and comparisons with the Stone Roses, Primal Scream et al are still present, their is a definate sound on this particular album which is tinged with the sunshine of Lead singer Tim Burgess LA residence. Soulful and intense songs such as Judas, Love is the Key, and i just cant get over losing you, stand out and display the new falsetto range of burgess over fantastic hooks and great keyboards, adding an electronic depth which has always made the Charlatans forward moving, relevant and down right nessacary.This year has not seen such an uplifting, sexy album, while others hark back to ages old or take experimentation to the absurd and unlistenalble, The Charalatans strut into the future using what has gone before them and making it truly thiers.Ace, Mega, A MUST!
