4.0 out of 5 stars Humourous listening, 11 Feb. 2003
This review is from: Trouser Jazz (Audio CD)
Ok, firstly-don't take Scruff's music too seriously. Secondly-it's not getting 5 stars because of the few tracks that let the album down ('Beyond' for example). However...... Trouser Jazz is an amazing follow up to Keep It Unreal. It takes a while to get into it and does feel quite slow on the first few listens but quoting 'Cheeky' from Unreal "Just open up your mind, let the music inside" The tunes miraculously seem to get funkier the more you listen to it. Don't you always find the best albums are the ones that get more enjoyable as time goes on?
I do admit that a few on the tracks are quite repetitive and yes, the advert thing-I know. But don't let a hint of commercialism spoil your enjoyment of Mr McCarthy's music. All in all the album is definately worth owning. It's an uplifting mix of funky beats and happy sounds in true Scruff style.
Not heard any Scruff before? I recommend having a listen to a friends first. My flatmate hates this album, but then he likes commercial 'house' ; ) (miaoow) It does make me wonder though, without meaning to quote the Unreal album too much; "Do you hear what I hear?" You'll love or hate this album, have you got the ears for it?
By the way-if you are already a Mr Scruff fan and haven't seen him live yet-sort it out man, his sets are amazing. Laters : )
