5.0 out of 5 stars FROM LANGLEY PARK TO HEAVEN!!!, 1 May 2007
This review is from: Jordan: The Comeback (Audio CD)
If ever an album didnt get the praise it desereved..this must be up there with them! the beautiful innocence of "steve mcqueen" but with a million pounds of production! its big on an epic classic pure scale! as polished as ABC's "lexicon of love" as true as prefabs "steve mqueen" (you cant beat the best) or as a big concept album in line with a kate bush album!

this album is pure class from start to finish! yes not every single track is amzing but they are few and far between! both paddy and wendy step out of the shadows and deliver some amazing vocals!

"looking for atlantis" opens the album and is pop heaven..lush production, lush vocals..its like "appetite" with a million pounds behind it!

"wild horses" has always been a big favourite of mine - its innocence and purity...you can almost smell summer!

"machine gun ibiza" is ok - one of the weaker tracks, "we let the stars go" was the 2nd single and an odd choice, yes its beautiful and simple like all the best of prefab but its a bit lost as a single. "carnival 2000" was released as part of an ep...(a last ditch attempt to have a huge hit!) its great..big brassy and would have made an ace single if it was released 6 months earlier to tie in with the new decade!

"jordan" was part of the e.p. as well.. again a stand out track..one of their best! "jesse james" and "bolero" arent that good but with 19 tracks you cant have perfection all the time!

"moondog" is ok and "all the world loves lovers" (released as a single with greatest hits) is brilliant!!!

"all boys" may only have one one line..but its a good one..and is a great track! "ice maiden" was on the e.p. as well and listening to it now i think robbie williams stole the introduction for "rock dj"..a great track!

"paris smith" is the honest simple classy prefab number..."wedding march" although not what you would expect is corny and humorous..."one of the broken" is a song by god..its not paddy getting bigheaded..its a great track...."mercy" is a lovely acoustic number till it goes into U2 at their finest..big guitars..big vocals..big production!

"scarlet nights" is back to pure beauty in singing and songwriting as in "doowop in harlem"

anyone who has thought of buying this album will not be disappointed...i promise! it may be prefab sprouts finest hour!

"This track's good", "That track's ok", "This track's brilliant", etc. does not constitute a review. And anyway you're wrong about the Jesse tracks, possibly the best on the album.
