Audience were a much underrated band of their time with all of their albums full of excellently played woodwind, brass and keyboards and blended in lots of subtle and always melodic tunes. Howard Werth's vocals are very distinctive and should have given this band lots more commercial success than they achieved. their back catalogue certainly stands up well after more than 30 years.

During the seventies I was the biggest advocate of this band, that I knew! I could not understand why they didn't achieve more commercial success than they did. True Messrs Werth and Co. would probably have been more suited to the Music Hall circuit, had they been born 75 years earlier, but you could say the same about The Kinks. Like The Kinks, Audience were celebrated purveyors of musical vignettes, like 'Trombone Gulch' and 'Barracuda Dan' on this album, but also like The Kinks, they were guilty of writing some classic pop songs. I'm not pretending that Howard Werth is up there with the God Like Genius, Ray Davies, but he was certainly fit to hold his coat! 'Stand By the Door' and 'Thunder and Lightning' from this album should have been hits, as should 'You're Not Smiling' and 'Eye to Eye' from the previous album 'House on the Hill'. This was the outfit's last offering. Keith Gemmel joined Stackridge, Nick Judd joined Sharks and the drummer (sorry mate I've forgotten your name!) found that elusive commercial success with Hot Chocolate. Not sure what became of the bass player. Mainman Howard Werth narrowly escaped becoming Jim Morrison's replacement in the remains of The Doors; that dubious privilege eventually falling to ex-Bronco singer Jess Roden, who then sank without trace in the aftermath. Howard made one more album with Charisma, the sorely neglected 'King Brilliant' so- titled as it was brilliant that he ever got it finished!! Containing several gems like 'Fading Star', 'Ugly Water' and the sublime 'The Aleph', it is considered by many to be his finest work. It certainly deserved and still deserves, a lot more attention than it's had. He's popped up with the odd tune several times since, but hasn't been particularly apparent since the early eighties. Last I heard he was living in Deal in Kent. In closing, I would like to say that the cover of the vinyl LP of this album, is paobably my favourite of all time!
see ya!

Ah, yes - the final Audience album. Do yourself a favor, and get all of their albums - "Audience", "Friends Friends Friends", "House On The Hill" and this, the mighty "Lunch". Howard Werth was never in better voice - I wish he had been who replaced Peter Gabriel in Genesis (but that's just my opinion!). His solo stuff is also very good, but, for my money, Audience were the real deal. Buy now!

This (2nd) Audience album never matched up to their 1st..(House...)..But there's some good fun tracks on it..It sounds as fresh at it did way back when..And there's nothing wrong with those 70's production techniques.It seems loud and inyour face no matter the volume!!.If you like this album..'The House on the Hill' will blow you away..(Never wanting to undermine true musical talent..)
