This will always remind me of school days, and a couple of friends singing Happy Birthday to someone, rather inappropriately given the actual lyrics of the song. It's not on the level of one or two of the earlier classic albums (though possibly as good as one or two that are reckoned to be in the classics), but a real return to form after the disappointing Secret Life of Plants. Maybe some of it feels a little predictable, maybe it's been played too much, but what's not to like about Master Blaster, All I do, I ain't gonna stand for it (a really tight performance)? And "Lately" is a really touching song about the loss of love. The remastered version sounds great - got to love the breaking glass (lamp?) at the end of Do like you. You done broke Mummy's lamp! Uh Uh! Yes you did!
