They Can Do Magic,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Alias (Audio CD)
The Magic Numbers have the ability to write clever melodic songs, I realise that's hugely unfashionable but if you like clever lyrics with great arrangements then it's time to rediscover the Magic Numbsrs. This ltd edition lasts 75 minutes and it never over stays it's welcome. Bravely opening with the six minute Wake Up, this opus shows what a great songwriter Romeo Stobart is, lifting influences from The Beach Boys, The Beatles & cult power pop cult figures such as Jellyfish & The Greenberry Woods this record deserves a huge audience but there's just too many good songs here. The closing 4 bonus songs are alt versions of 4 of the songs here, bonus songs usually mean poor live versions serving as filler. Not here the voices of The Magic Numbers sound like CSN they're that good. Like good intelligent pop music? Buy it.
