5.0 out of 5 stars
Excellent Album, well produced. Love Surf? Love Western Skies !!, 26 July 2006
I have always been a big fan of Surf and before that The North Star. On purchasing Western Skies, I was a little disappointed on the first listen through (I mean, how can you top Surf - what a fantastic album). By the 3rd or 4th time, it got me hooked.
I found myself humming tunes and wanting to listen again. The title track is deep and moody and the stand-up bass line sounds amazing through a sub-woofer. Like previous albums, you will not find a bad track anywhere in sight.
Roddy's classic guitar playing along with some sometimes impenetrable lyrics get into your eardrums and stay there, running around in your head, waiting for you to play the CD over and over again. Buy this album and if you haven't got them already, buy Surf and The North Star...You won't be disappointed, all 3 of these are masterpeices of this man's amazing talent to write good, catchy songs.
Note to Roddy Frame.... MORE MORE MORE AND SOON PLEASE !!
