What a great album, thoroughly enjoyable, classic tracks and very different but with the same energy and exuberance
on 21 February 2017
I cannot believe I completely missed out on this band at its inception. I only recently came across a track on BBC4 and an old TOTP showing, what on earth was I doing at the time, how did I miss them? Such energy, incisive observation lyrics and definitely that illusive quality, that "Je ne said croix" with catchy hooks, excellent guitar work and superb expressive, intriguing and sexy vocals. No wonder they have influenced many other big names in music. This album is a sheer joy and a proper " grower" and better yet they are still out there touring now and with a new album in the wings.
Yes they certainly have done "great things and without compromise" from my viewpoint by giving me lots of listening pleasure and in the process have become my new favourite band!
