The whole package - sleeve, music, production, Steve Rinaldi's slim black tie, white shirt, silver-grey mohair suit and tasselled loafer combination - simply insists that here's a performer with style. Every tune is a homage to late-60's Brit lounge and soul music (think Scott Walker, Tony Hatch, Foundations, etc.). Rinaldi's lush music and honed sense of immaculate presentation is clearly a suited-and-booted reaction to the slovenly dress and demeanour of the post-Strokes generation; very much music for 'chaps' to watch girls by. Also, with Paul Bevoir (The Jetset) arranging, Ed Ball (The Times) directing the promotional videos, and Rinaldi himself (one-time member, of course, of The Moment), this is a post-80's Mod extravaganza updated in that retro kind of way. Pour yourself a cocktail, slip into that cardigan and cravat, stick it on your Dansette, crank up the volume, and get ready to "blow those bleedin' doors off!!!"

Wasn't sure whether or not I was going to like this but it was recommended by a friend so thought I would give it a try. Am loving it. Great tongue in cheek 60's pop feel to it. The arrangments are excellant. A must for all those who love 60's style pop. A real feel good CD

FANTASTIC!! This is real toe tapping pop by real musicians. I defy anyone not to be uplifted by Happy, reflect over Come Again, and have Heaven Knows repeat over & over in your head. Rollercoater Ride is a sure fire No1. This is a must have CD for the summer of 2005.

First time I listened to this I thought is was a little samey. Safe retro brit soul, but more listens revealed a very heady upbeat cd, uniike so much whine music of today. Modern references ( marie Clare ) are mixed with strawber fields/waterloo sunset images, which evoke the sixties. If I was 16 I'd much rather listen to this than Coldplay or Franz Frerdinand, but I'm, but I'm 39 with a scooter and a lot of mod baggage, so probably biased. Have a listen though, good production values and great optimistic tunes.

Think cutesy Jetset tunes mixed with Weller's girl Tracie. Throw around some target and scooter imagery, some over-the-top schmaltz and you've got some instantly forgettable and highly redundant material.
I'm sure this is supposed to be tongue in cheek to a certain degree, but really it's just mediocre pop music.
