The one that took The Church to a whole new level.,
This review is from: Heyday (Audio CD)
After some patchy stuff in the early 1980's, finally The Church realized their full potential with this dreamy collection of inspired music. From the opening bars of the fabulous "Myrr" to the swinging guitars of "Roman", this is a trully unforgettable collection still fresh and contemporary today. So many highlights - the beautifully crafted pop of "Tristesse", "Already Yesterday", "Columbus" and "Night of Light" to the storming "Tantalised" (one of my all-time Church faves), this is what you'd call a "belter" of a record. Starfish was no surprise after the brilliance exhibited here. "Heyday" really was their 1980's heyday and it set the tone for what was to come out of Manchester several years later. Not bad for an Aussie band .. and perhaps thats why they are still producing some of the finest music in 2008. Don't leave this one out of the collection.

Mr. Wj Hirstle says:
Good review, but most fans regard their previous albums, with the possible exception of Seance, as at least as good as this. So anyone new to the Church please don't be put off earlier material! Buy Heyday, then buy the others too!
