If anything, better than the first album - how much mileage can they wring from cricket??
on 13 March 2017
Impossible to imagine that a whole concept album of any quality could be written on the subject of cricket yet, if anything, this second album is even better than the first. The music covers a wide range of genres, even bordering on heavy rock at times. It really feels like a top notch stage show in the making (if only their were enough cricket lovers among musical goers). In fact, the cricket is often just a cover for some completely different underlying theme, especially Out in the Middle (for me, the stand-out track). Having bought this at the same time as Divine Comedy's Foreverland, this for me is the better of the 2 - terrific.
