Sublime and perfect, more relevant today than it was back in the 90s
on 3 August 2017
The soundtrack to my formative years for sure. I remember picking up "Mind Bomb" on tape years ago, losing that copy, buying another one, then losing the ability to play tapes. I found myself humming "Dogs of Lust" recently and made a point of picking up all of the early The The albums on CD to remind myself how good they were.
Listening to this stuff from the early 90s, you're instantly wondering where the hell Matt Johnson is now, at a time where all the songs on "Mind Bomb" are still ridiculously relevant (in fact even more so) today than they were back then. Johnson was a fantastic, prolific and prophetic song writer and this was one of the finest albums of the 90s bar none.
