5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, Hilarious and Touching, 13 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Silver Jubilee (Audio CD)
This CD compiles all of the new songs from Fascinating Aïda's Silver Jubilee tour and the recordings are not the same as those on the Fascinating Aida - Silver Jubilee [DVD] (which adds to the variety). It was the songs on here that introduced me to this group and now and, as a result, I have been purchasing their back catalogue. The songs are satirical, witty and up-to-date, such as "It Isn't Too Late to Be Famous", "Health & Safety", "Tesco Saves" and the "Bulgarian Song Cycles 2009" (think Tom Lehrer) but also very touching and heart-felt as in "I Saw Two People" and "Goodbye Old Friends". Sometimes, they're even downright and delightfully crude ("Dogging").

There was originally a furore over the fact that "Cheap Flights", which was made very popular on YouTube, was not included on this CD. The reason for this was that it was an encore and not part of the main show but was due to be part of the next production. It seams that the record label has relented and re-released the CD with this track included (taken from the DVD). It is not mentioned on the cover nor is the lyric included in the sleeve, but it's on there.

There is a huge amount of wit that goes into these songs and I hope they continue for many years.
