Being a die hard fan of The Beautiful South, I was excited to hear that they were releasing a new album. I pre ordered Superbi and it arrived just a few days ago. I haven't stopped listening to it since. First impression was that there was nothing new here but after just a few plays it grabbed my attention. The lyrics are quirky and cleverly written.
Not sure I like the country & western sound that this album has adopted, but nevertheless, the tunes are catchy. I especially love 'Manchester'. (Very brave of the band considering they will be playing there this forthcoming tour!!).
Listen carefully to the lyrics, give the album a chance and you won't be dissapointed.
Still love the 'old stuff' best though!
