Catchy but patchy,
This review is from: The It Girl (Audio CD)
Sleeper epitomise the mid-nineties phenomenon known as 'Brit-Pop', a sorry malady that elevated bands of mediocre ability to stardom. Some survived to fight another day. Others, wracked with fever and pain, passed on to the giant studio in the sky. Sleeper qualify as the latter. That said, this album is their finest, and if it's melodic pop hooks that you crave then look no further than The It Girl. With two top ten and four top twenty hits, those breathy Wener vocals never sounded so enthralling (yeah, that's right, Steve...). Buy it - you might like it - but don't blame me if you end up microwaving it.
