A truly great and little known album
on 25 November 2000
Protest Songs rivals 'Steve McQeen' as the sprouts finest work, tracks like pearly gates and talking scarlet are masterpieces that were never releasd as singles, protest songs was actually recorded in 1985 (right after steve McQ) but was not released for another 4 years, I wonder why. All 10 tracks are excellent(you can't that say very often) and show Paddy McAloon to be one of the truly great modern composers. If you appreciate intelligent tuneful music get this Album you will love it forever.
