A work of Pop-Art,
This review is from: The Sound of ... McAlmont & Butler (Audio CD)
I re-discovered this glorious piece of music recently whilst thumbling through tapes when stuck in traffic. How glad I was to be stuck in traffic because this is a complete gem... a lot of people who do know of McAlmont and Butler will know of them because of the massive hit, 'Yes', but thats the first track and only the start of something very special indeed. Bursting with highlight tracks and standout moments, 'Whats the excuse this time?' and 'The Debitor' are both splendidly imaginative groovers, while 'Dissapointment', with its soul-funk feel gradually builds into respectable pop-anthem status. The highlight for me has to be the simply wonderful 'How About You?' which has a soaring summer melody capable of breaking many a heart, but the whole consistancy and mood of the album is a credit to 2 fantastic artists in their own right in a fascinating collaboration.
