Simple, soulful quality pop,
This review is from: Raintown: Legacy Edition (Audio CD)
I have this album from first time round and with the resurgence in interest in DB I dug it out, blew off the dust and away I went. It brought back memories of my youth, mostly good memories!! These songs are simple, well written and well executed from a band who were/ are talented from pre-X Factor days when talent was a requirement to be a success in music industry! Stand out tracks are all the biggies 'Real Gone Kid', 'Dignity', 'Wages Day' and 'Chocolate Girl'. My all time favourite DB track is 'Your Town'. For anyone who has never heard of Deacon Blue then try them out you may be surprised. The songs are not earth shattering but totally listenable and DB are one of the best bands to come out of Scotland but strangely do not get enough credit in my opinion.
