Not typical but Catchy as hell
on 20 February 2007
I bought this, hated it, sold it, then found myself singing all the songs so bought it again!
It is very different to the previous albums. The backing band is sparse and heavy, the vocals mush nore repetitive and simple, often annoyingly so. The drums are very over the top, a bit like Aynsley Dunbar on Bowies Pin Ups album. The guitar a bit like Mick Ronsons playing too. It all goes to make a very different album.
If you like Sparks dont make this a first purchase, get Kimono or Lil Beethoven first, this is not for the casual Sparks fan and is not really for the faint hearted.
