As a long time Smiths fan who has only recently got into Johnny's solo stuff I approached Boomslang fearing I may be disappointed . I loved The Messenger & Playland but had read many negative reviews of his work with The Healers.
However once the cd arrived I was pleasantly surprised . It's a very different sounding record to his more recent solo work but in my opinion this is just as good . Every song on the album is well worth hearing and it's far more laid back than the more recent "punky" stuff and maybe not as instant but after a couple of plays it really gets into your head .
Marvellous stuff and it's sad Johnny doesn't seem keen to play any of this album on his wonderful solo gigs anymore .
