1.0 out of 5 stars Formulaic cack., 25 May 2003
This review is from: Just Enough Education To Perform (Audio CD)
As far as indie albums go, it`s safe to say that `Word Gets Around` was one of the most original, inspired and thoughtful albums of the 90s. Kelly Jones` lyrics were marvellous, the songs never left your head, and at a time when I was pretty depressed, the album moved me immensely.
On that basis, it`s very disappointing to hear the subsequent follow-up and this LP, as all the Cwmaman influences, and the passionate songwriting that came with them, have gone. This, inevitably, leads to a lot of tacky Rod Stewart based doodlings (note "Mr Writer", "Handbags and Gladrags", Have a Nice day"), or even worse, Beatles-inspired scribblings ("Caravan Holiday"). Either way, one of the few bands who had no reason to sell out to commercialism have done. Buy this LP if you are ignorant of what interesting music is.
