A cracking album,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bula Quo! (Audio CD)
It does seem that this album has divided the opinion of the nation (or at least the opinion of Quo fans). I'm not the only person who is thinking that this can't possibly be the worst Quo album. Anyone who does has surely not listened to all their work. They can't have. "Back to Back", "Ain't Complaining" "Perfect Remedy", "Thirsty Work" and "Famous in the Last Century"? In fact, every album from "1982" until "In Search of the Fourth Chord" has got some very dodgy tracks on it. I have to admit to being in two minds when I first heard "Bula Bula Quo" but I kept listening to it. Like them for it or not, they have a knack of writing and/or recording a catchy "pop" tune - if you know your Quo history then you already know this. If not, then listen to their first two albums (and I don't mean "Piledriver" and "Hello") or the music they recorded as The Spectres and Traffic Jam. This album has a very large variety of song styles, is very well produced and, most importantly, the songs are well written. Well done the Quo!
