Not their best, but a nice easy listening album,

This review is from: Play (Audio CD)
So far I've not disliked anything that Squeeze have produced, although for me this is one of my least favourite albums. That isn't necessarily a bad thing and in no way am I suggesting this is a bad album - it just simply goes to show how good Squeeze are at producing quality music. It is a testament to the band if fans can disagree on what their best albums are. I would agree with the other reviewers who suggest playing the album a few times for it to start growing on you. It is much more mellow than their previous material and has more of a 90s feel about it, which at least shows that Squeeze were able to move with the times. It is an easy album to listen to and shows a more softer side to the band. However it isn't so much to my taste compared to other Squeeze material. For me their best work was done in the late 70s and early to mid 80s. Obviously a must for any Squeeze fan, but if I was to showcase Squeeze to anyone unfamiliar with their music, I probably wouldn't choose this album.
