5.0 out of 5 stars Play it!, 27 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Play (Audio CD)
Can`t believe how underrated this perfect collection of songs has been since its release.
The follow-up to the magnificent Frank, this is an album as good as anything by the Beatles, Steely Dan or Crowded House in their heydays. Yes, it really is that good.
Glenn Tilbrook`s is the voice to the fore here, and what a voice. I`ve rarely heard him sing so well, so passionately.
I can`t pick out favourites - The Day I Get Home, Wicked And Cruel...both are magnificent, as are all the others - and whenever I play PLAY I hear it as a peerless, seamless `suite` of 12 wonderful songs by one of the handful of truly creative, melodic, lyrically ingenious bands to have come from these shores.
Beatles, Kinks, Squeeze...and the more I listen to Glenn, Chris and the boys, the more they seem a wonder to be treasured for as long as intelligent pop/rock music is heard, on a par with any group you could mention.
Squeeze: unique, brilliant, a great band. This is one of their very best.
