I Sat Down and Didn't Stop Listening!,
This review is from: Since I Left You (Audio CD)
As with many here, I purchased this album purely for the Frontier Psychiatrist song, which in my impetuous youth I found engrossing and very funny. I wasn't sure what to expect from the the rest of the album, but as the title suggests, I put it on and didn't let it stop, this album is a work of epic chill out, and up tempo funk.
I gave the album a five star rating, purely for the fact of longevity, that I have listened to this day after day, week after week et al. The samples are cleverly positioned, and each track creates an oxymoron, as it's almost indistinguishable when the next song begins, but you somehow just know.
I'm surprised no one has mentioned my personal favourite track, "A Different Feeling". This is a song perfect, for getting ready to go out, or cruising on a crisp sunny spring day, and the way the song kicks into the synths during the chorus, I always find magical.
The album has plenty of other hidden gems, not least "Live at Dominoes", and the school time classic "Flight Tonight", but also "Radio" has the same connotations as A Different Feeling, in terms of song structure, and a lovely change of pace again during the chorus.
Suffice to say there's enough here for everyone to enjoy, and you'll be disappointed when the end of the album comes, because you won't even of realised it had taken you over an hour!
