This review is from: The Best Of The Flying Pickets (Audio CD)
Frankly, I hate their politics so enough of that because I want to talk music.
If you like singers who can sing in harmony but not in a singy-songy singalong style then this is one for you. If you are a bit of a silver oldie, this is for you. If you like to sing along, this is for you. If you like quality songs this is for you.
If you like samey, thrash or boom music save your money, this is not for you. This is no Frank Sinatra/ usual choral/harmony group style either.
They have beautiful, entertaining voices that create a wall to wall, pleasurable, sound experience. Not pretentious just really good singing.
The variety of songs and treatments is wide and it is difficult to pick a favourite. I have one but yours may well be different.
This is a treat.
Their public performances were magnificent. Come back boys re-work the magic.
Meantime I recommend you buy this CD and enjoy that magic.
