Forgotten how many great Proclaimers songs there are: let's get marries; i'm on my way; and it's over and done with...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Return, 5 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Diamond in a Rock (Audio CD)
I was a fan of Tunde's first record including the wonderful songs letting me down gently and anaesthetic. If anything, this record surpasses the first. Tunde's vocals, always distinctive, have found a different gear and the songwriting is exemplary. Apart from the excellent first single Move, other highlights include the title track, awake and the stunning closer we are all in this together. A real gem.

Wave Machines' second record is the sound of a band upping their game. Their sonic palette has broadened considerably and, whilst there are less poptastic moments, the album is, on the whole, more satisfying than their wonderful debut wave if you're really there. It's more engaging and absorbing. It reminds me of Talk Talk in parts. Standout tracks are the singles ill fit and i hold loneliness, the unbelievably intense home and weird and wonderful closer sitting in a chain, blinking. No filler at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dazzling!, 21 July 2011
This review is from: Peppermint Candy (Audio CD)
This is a well thought out swing compilation - it contains some swing classics but is also full of contemporary swing acts. Fantastic!

I bought the limited 7 inch singles of this band last year and have heard alot of this record on their myspace []. Tuneful and original and great live. Punk Spirit in particular is a future classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Sounds Great after a Year on My iPod, 24 Jun. 2007
This review is from: Hurricane Glass (Audio CD)
This is a re-released version of a great album that came out last year. Decent female singer-songwriters are ten a penny but there's something about this album that stands out from the crowd: it's definitely Feeny's unique brooding and melancholic voice but also the dark and acerbic lyrics which often have as their counterpoint gentle, sweet melodies. Hush Now, Mr Blue and Radar are all examples of the above. I hope it finds the audience it deserves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neglected Classic, 24 Jun. 2007
I think this was Joni's last great record. She followed this up with Mingus which is still feel is unlistenable and then with what is definitely her worst album - Wild Things Run Fast - where she tried to reclaim some commercial clout after the critical and commercial failure that was Mingus. An album best served by repeated playings; it is the last record in what is an unprecedented run of great albums: Blue; For The Roses; Court and Spark; Hissing of Summer Lawns; Hejira and Don Juan.
