as if, ....... I care,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: As If (Audio CD)
I bought "as if..." after some years of interest in CB&S but mainly to catch up with their recorded output after seeing them perform at 'The Musician', in Leicester, earlier this year.
Their live performance was very good, but "as if..." is even better. With trademark harmony and despite a couple of pretty morbid tracks which I find difficult to listen to, even though I appreciate their sincerity, this album is a fine collection, representing the best of this accomplished group's output.
This album would be worth it solely for their arrangements of Richard Thompson's "Keep Your Distance" plus their own compositions "The Emperor's New Clothes" and "We Got Fooled Again", but in its entirety it is proof that here are terrific musicians in unique combination and at the top of their game.
