a glorious summer!
on 1 April 2007
the second bananarama album was produced by jolley/swain the hottest people around at the time..alison moyets debut for instance!
the album has the same feel as the great album "alf" and some of the fun of "deep sea skiving" but it seems a lot more serious and a lot of the fun of the first album is missing.
"cruel summer" provided the girls with a huge hit and is one of my favourites..."robert de niros waiting" was even bigger.."rough justice" flopped and why they released it remains a mystery...yes it has a message..."children are staring on the streets ect" but its not what nana fans wanted! "hotline to heaven" was released after this and again failed to make an impression.
the problem with the album is...bananarama are about fun..this album had all the great points of the first album but it didnt sound happy! i know i hark back to alison moyet but if she had recorded it it would probably sound wonderful!
