Worthy successor to 'S.F. Sorrow'
on 19 December 2014
'Parachute', the Pretty Things 5th studio album (released on E.M.I's newly formed, subsidiary record label Harvest), sees the band operating in the same progressive vein that they occupied on their superb predecessor 'S.F. Sorrow', although on this occasion there is a much looser concept throughout. Following a series of lovely, short tracks that open up this album, things get even more interesting in the middle of proceedings with the juicy power of 'Cries From The Midnight Circus' followed by the gorgeous 'Grass', providing the highlights in my opinion. Make no mistake, this is another superbly constructed work from these guys and it is certainly well worth buying to place alongside 'S.F. Sorrow' in your record collection. There are also a number of solid bonus tracks included here which round things off very nicely indeed.
