'Stars' (1991) is, deservedly, one of the Top 20 selling albums of all-time in the UK and spawned no fewer than 5 Top 40 singles ~ the classy title track, the lovely 'For Your Babies', the catchy 'Something Got Me Started', the classy 'Your Mirror' and the upbeat 'Thrill Me'. Of the other 5 tracks, 'Model', with its lilting reggae beat, and the sweet ballad 'How Could I Fall' qualify for special mention here. If you haven't heard this album, and you like smooth, well-delivered soul-influenced pop music, then this should fit the bill very nicely indeed.

This album has the most diverse range of tunes that I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. I admit to being a Simply Red fan but this album was a turning point in the life of the band's music....and it got me hooked! The jumping bean tempo of 'Something Got Me Started' gets the old feet moving! My personal favourite is the obviously girly appealing 'For Your Babies'! I could quite happily listen to the whole album and not get bored with the perfect mix of groove, romance and Mick Hucknall's fantastic belter of a voice.

One of my favourite albums from the 90's and then I lost touch with the music and moved on to other stuff then I saw a program on the production of this album which rekindled my interest. This is a well put together album and this led me to get a new flame as well.

I have a strange relationship with this album. Having loved their debut album by the time they had got to releasing "Stars" I was feeling strongly that they had sold out to the "middle-of-the-road" (middle-aged) stereotype and were just in it for the album sales and money.

Clearly, the album had strong qualities but I just felt that they hadn't progressed in the way that many other bands who started in the same era had done (e.g. U2, TalkTalk, Simple Minds). Not fulfilled ŵhat I felt was their awesome potential.

But, having just back-filled my new hi- fi set-up with albums I had originally owned as vinyl I must confess that this album now sits very comfortably on its own time-tested merits as a classic of its genre with great songs throughout presented in startlingly-good recording quality.

Just does exactly what it ever alluded to on its "tin" and never presumed to be anything than the perfect proponent of this style of music that it undoubtedly is.

Thousands will be enjoying this music long after I am dead and gone, so who am I to argue?

If you can't beat 'em join 'em!........and I am very happy to do so !

Buy and enjoy.

'Stars' is a masterpiece. Packed with perfect hooks, rhythms, and tunes, it comprises songs which are instant classics. Mick Hucknall sings his social commentary with a seasoned flawlessness which has to be heard to be believed. It is difficult to consolidate Mick Hucknall the icon with Mick Hucknall the artist.

An album that everyone should have in their collection, regardless of tastes.

I am a Classic Rock and Prog Rock fan, but this should sit on the shelf... even if it is in the corner.

Whilst the image of Mick Hucknall may be the butt of most music-related jokes, the actual output of Simply Red's musical output is still as refreshing as it was when it was released back in the day. Their 1991 album, Stars, is a prime example of their most mainstream work, which was producing soul music for the masses. And whilst not every track has aged as well as it should be, the album stills holds up as an entertaining soul-pop album, with all the clichés thrown in that early 1990s soul was suffering from this era. So whilst not everyone fancies listening to such synth-ridden pop, with an over-used sax backing, the majority of Stars' output does leave the average listener a lot of like with this kind of music.
Whilst Stars maybe the first place most people will think of Simply Red's music, the average newcomer of their work will leave with the kind of satisfaction you can get with their brand of soul-pop from this decade.
