A masterpiece! To me, not only is Saturnalia David Gedge's finest hour but probably the greatest album of all time! For die hard Weddoes fans like myself Saturnalia runs like a greatest hits album, combining all aspects of the preceding four albums 'proper'. From the opening 'ping' of track one 'Venus' thru to the dying embers of the closing track '50's' fading into nothingness(without a doubt the finest fade-out in recording history) it oozes quality with ten other 'jems' inbetween. More highlights include: the dreamy guitar of 'Dreamworld' DLG's vocal on 'Snake Eyes' and 'Hula Doll'/'Big Boots' are just brilliant! Its fitting that this should be the final TWP album before the birth of Cinerama. So the boy Gedge certainly knows how to go out in style after an amazing twelve years or so...and on to the next best project...well you'll just have to go out and get em' boy!

I'm afraid I'm not as enthused by the previous reviewers of this, The Wedding Presents last album.
Whilst this album is in no way money wasted, I think we're all in a dream world if this is considered TWP's finest hour, to me it's not close to any of the big 3, George Best, Bizarro and Seamonsters.
In parts the ablum sounds like 90's indie popsters Lush, the jangly guitars that are all over the album aren't the sound I like and the soft Gedge voice in 2,3,Go I find upsetting.
The highlights of the album; although still with female backing vocals, that give the tracks a "Primitives" feel are Montreal and Kansas and that I've no idea what Gedge is on about is still fun. Snake eyes takes us back to TWP of old, but only briefly.
I've recently compiled a best of TWP, I'm sad to say that none of the songs on this album have made the 11 I chose.

Good question, as "Watusi" is a fantastic Weddoes album. But then so "Saturnalia". Perhaps not as immediate as their earlier stuff, this finds Gedge in typical broken hearted form. The lyrics are perhaps more adult - "I like watching you when you come" - but the songs are trademark WP. From the jangly pop of "Montreal" to the grunge fuzz guitar squall of "Skin Diving" this is a must have. Stick with it, give it a few goes, and it will reveal its treasures. Fantastic!!!!
