As soon as I heard the Czars music I was hooked. It's certainly not completely mainstream but has enough beautiful hooks to be immediately enjoyable. Some songs (Stay, Any Younger) have quirky middle eight pieces that (almost) detract from the direction but I have little trouble forgiving them for these detours. My personal favourite on this album is Val for it's wonderful build up and vocal harmony. It's worth mentioning that the singer's voice is the best I have heard and he seems to pull of some simple but moving tricks with it that tend to make the songs for me. If you like his voice you'll want to buy all the Czars albums immediately.
Ordered the CD before I went on holiday, three weeks, and it was safe and sound in my letterbox on our return. Better still I was able to download whilst away and enjoy a whole three weeks of bonus pleasure. Thaqnks
