4.0 out of 5 stars A fine little album, 18 May 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Luxembourg (Audio CD)
It's sad that this album seems likely to be largely underrated by many. The Bluetones are a good band who unfortunately seem unable to inspire much more than apathy from the record buying public. This is a great shame because this album really is good. Their previous album "Science and Nature", contained some gems, but seemed to struggle to keep a healthy balance between serious music and the Bluetones jokey, toungue-in-cheek approach to song writting (songs like "Autophilia - Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love My Car" don't smack of great musical intergrity) But this album is different. With ten tracks in 34 mins, there's no time for messing about with lengthy reprises of half humourous choruses. All the tracks are upbeat and punchy. Just as you're becoming hooked on one, it shoots full pace into the next. This is one of those albums that will have you humming away and tapping your feet long after you've turned the cd player off. The sly humour is still there, lyrics like "Keep hearing/ the same rumours/ about you and/ satsumas" will make you smile, but never compramise the music.
In my opinion this is exactly the sort of album the Bluetones should have released, its a deffinate change for the better, and worthwhile addition to a cd collection.
