CARTER USM 1992 The Love Album (2005 issue UK 10-track CD album including the hit The Only Living Boy In New Cross comes with a picture / lyric booklet)
Top Customer Reviews
1992 - The Love Album entered the UK album charts at No. 1 on its release in May 1992. Highlights include the band's highest single placing for radio-friendly chant of The Only Living Boy In New Cross, the punk explosion of While You Were Out and the Marc Almond-style waltz of England - British melancholy at its best.
Both parts of Carter USM are alive and well - Jim now solo having recorded for a while with Jim's Super Stereoworld, and Les with his punk outfit Abdoujaparov, as well as his excellent new career presenting an indie/punk/glam show on local radio station Phoenix FM.
Bought the download for my iPod, well pleased - doesn't sound any better
or worse than the CD.
Living in New Cross at the time of its release, it would have been rude not too buy this and the melancholy ballad the Impossible Dream (made famous again recently in the epic Honda advert) sealed the deal. These boys really know how to write songs, with wordplay (Do Re Me So Far So Good) second only to Paul Heaton and perhaps Morrissey IMO.
From the James Bond-esque opening rifts of 1993 to the powerful The Impossible Dream, this CD has no weak tracks (apart from perhaps the accordion in England, which just doesn't do it for me) only well produced and sometimes edgy ones. Listen out for the occasional Bowie/Ziggy Stardust influence too.
Carter have their own grown-up rocking indie style with their own lyrical take on the world. Superb stuff.
