With seminal albums like 'Stars' and 'Home' in their repertoire, Simply Red had much to live up to with their new long player, 'Stay'. For this reviewer (a fan for more years than I care to remember), this album has delivered on every level.
It's a vibrant collection of songs that range from the slick soulfullness we've come to expect (`The World And You Tonight') to the wonderfully guitar-driven Ronnie Lane classic 'Debris' and the playful 'Oh What A Girl'. If I had to choose a highlight, it would be the irrepressible title track 'Stay'.
And all delivered, as always, by Mick Hucknall's incredible vocal - a voice that few other artists can hold a candle to.
So, to sum, an essential addition to your CD collection if you appreciate top quality production and songs you will never tire of.
