5.0 out of 5 stars Marginally better than London Calling, 25 Nov. 2004
This review is from: Steve McQueen (Audio CD)
If I was the sort of important person who got to go on these 'best of' talking heads programmes where F list celebs get to voice their earthshatteringly significant views on such matters - and if the topic of this programme was 'best album in the world ever', I'd know which two I'd narrow it down to: The Clash - London Calling, and Prefab Sprout - Steve McQueen. And the Sprouts would just get the nod.
Steve McQueen is just sublime. Spine chillingly, nerve tinglingly, heartbreakingly sublime. Paddy's tunes and Lyrics, aimed at a generation of thoughtful college boys, were a notch above his contemporaries Morrisey and Marr (who were very much fishing in the same pond of introspection - though at the less sophisticated end). Wendy Smith's voice was never better employed than on this album, on tracks 2-6 especially.
Appetite? Best pop song ever! When Love Breaks Down? Best love song ever! Steve McQueen album cover? Marginally less good than London Calling. Steve McQueen contents? Marginally better than London Calling.
I can't believe you philistines are selling this for less than a fiver.
