4.0 out of 5 stars The return of The Wedding Present, 24 Nov. 2005
By 
This review is from: Take Fountain (Audio CD)
To his many mid thirties and older fans David Gedge, the only remaining original member and main songwriter of the group is a god. See The Wedding Present live and you can almost guarrantee someone will shout out "You are a God". On this album Gedge and his Apostles run through classic breakup material, made even more poignant by the ending of his long term relationship which inspired the songs.I defy anyone to listen to Larrys and not be moved close to tears.There's enough well produced loud guitars to keep old fans happy,the ones who missed out on Cinerama- Gedge's side project, and enough strings and mariaci horns to keep those of us who stuck with him happy as well. Simon Cleave, the other songwriter of the group has an ear for simple repetitive melodies, the recent single, I'm From Further North Than You" being a good example.
If your heart is broken now or ever has been, if you still have a secret desire to mosh with your mates in your living room whilst the kids aren't watching, buy this album.Better still buy this album and go and see them live next time they are in your town. It's grown up music for permanent adolescents.
