Top Customer Reviews
The style remains the same, as does the songwriting, meaning that if you enjoyed 'Moseley Shoals', 'Marchin' Already' should be alongside it in your CD collection. If an album can knock Oasis' 'Be Here Now' off the top spot in the UK charts, you know it must have a certain quality.
'Marchin' Already' kicks off with 'Hundred Mile High City', which is probably best remembered as one of the tracks used in the hit film 'Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrells'. However, the whole album is five star material from beginning to end, Steve Fowler's vocals are clean and sincere, and melodic tunes like 'Debris Road' and 'Get Blown Away', and filled with emotion and never fail to sooth me.
The album is easygoing, relaxing and like I've said, soothing. With so many of the songs bursting with such hit potential, it's no surprise that 'Marchin' Already' spawned four UK hit singles: 'Hundred Mile City High', 'Traveler's Tune', 'Better Day' and 'It's A Beautiful Thing'. The latter of which remains one of my all-time favourite Ocean Colour Scene songs.
The '90s was a great time for music, and whilst Oasis and Blur (who are undeniably awesome bands, and whose albums I own) dominated the Britpop scene, Ocean Colour Scene deserve to be thought of in the same league - and here is why.
"Hundred Mile High City" sounded like it and was used in a Brit-gangster flick and is a striking opener. "Travellers Tune" is a retro-stomp that is quite appealing. "Half A Dream Away" is a pleasant enough bit of ska-lite with a lovely trombone slot in the middle. "It's A Beautiful Thing" collapsing under the weight of Brendan Lynch fiddling at the production desk, which is a shame, as had it been trimmed it could have worked.
The rest is a combination of folky tunes and some more stodgy guitar work-outs.
Not a step forward. Just a broader retro brush.
