More good stuff from tape Five
on 20 October 2012
Most of what could be said of the last album applies here. The quality of the musicianship and of the female vocals remains top notch; the strength of the songs is a bit variable. High spots include Black Cotton Blues, Tintarella di Luna and Love Tonite, all of which sound authentic whilst of course not being. Geraldine's Routine and Bunga Book, are maybe the weak points, but that's just my opinion.
All in all, your feet will tap, and you will find yourself singing along. This album has accompanied me on a cold and soggy drive to and from work all week, and has lifted my spirits every time. This afternoon my wife, who isn't really into anything other than Stevie Wonder, conceded that " I quite like that!", so Swing Patrol clearly has powers to reach even the musically autistic!
