Pretty things go pop? Well almost, this was a move towards mainstream AOR and obviously aimed at the US market. Mix up Glam, R&B and soft rock and you get this album. Not really typical Pretty Things, but still worth a go. I guess if anything it is a bit directionless and unfocussed.
Undeniably one of the best bands ever. Longevity speaks for itself. This is the 7th album I have purchased by this band. All as good as each other. Unfortunately not given the same publicity as the Beatles through the 60's. Purchase one of their albums and you will be hooked.
Another Pretty Things album over looked. I bought this vinyl recently, and thinks its a killer. Some hard rockers, and some very beautiful soft songs by May. My Song for instance, is fantastic. Remember that Boy is a great rocking number. Phil May is certainly an under appreciated writer. There are some elements to this album of the time '76, I hear faint sounds of maybe Supertramp, with some high(ish) harmonies, and also keys. Phil and Skip have a great band behind them, just a shame their later stuff is over looked. Great album from a great band in my opinion. Worth a buy if you're a fan, of 70's rock.
Great album great band this album is defently up there with silk torpedo i realy enjoyed this album. If only music was produced today then in compressed mp3 format and had proper sound enginers. Thank god for classsic rock. This cd is well formated as its original studio recording was well produced and makes the band shine.
It's a traversty of epic proportions that the Pretties haven't been honoured with a bronze statue in the city of Rock. Why people never acknowledged their genius is beyond me. At least Led Zep supported this band when it counted by signing them to Swansong- it's a pity that this didn't bring either the recognition or the financial reward. Never mind they leave behind a stunning collection of music. This album shows the diversity of talent that was on offer - harmonies,melodies,cruching guitars all that was missing was a significantly large audience. Buy this CD and bow down and offer forgiveness for the lack of taste exhibited by previous generations. OK I didn't talk about the songs but they talk for themselves, all you have to do is cough up the dough. Wallets out at the ready..............
