A fine example of Hughe's witty pen skills - A must for fans of his work
on 15 May 2014
As a life long Stranglers fan I refused to listen to Hugh's solo stuff until a couple of years back and now I have his full catalogue. I liked this album instantly, he has shoved in a few licks of' 'psychedelic' lead guitar and the back drop rattles along at a fair pace too on a few tracks, Song 3 is brilliant! 'Window Shopping' - It is a classic example of his clever and witty writing skills. It is simple but it brings a smile to my face as does Bad Vibrations. He has made a play on the Beach Boys' Good Vibrations (I think) But why does the final track Dead of Night have to last 9 and a half minutes? There are only two songs I know of that last as long (Green Day classics)and they wrk because they are full of variety. Dead of Nightt just trundles along. Four minutes would have sufficed on that one Shuggie! Never the less a very good album.
