This review is from: Lostboy! (Audio CD)
This solo album from Simple Minds frontman Jim Kerr is without doubt better than 90% of the dross out
there. Superb songs and production, make this stand out, with each track revealing hidden depth, with
repeated plays. No point naming standout tracks,as the whole album is incredibly strong, with sublime
melodies, and Jim's distinctive vocal's. The lyric's are back to his best, with cryptic, hidden meanings
similar to early Minds.
I would never have thought he would do a solo album as good as this, and he seems to be flowing with ideas
at the moment. Sadly apart from Simple Minds fans, the album will probably be ignored, but he should take pride
in the fact, that the people who do buy it, will be musically educated, and in years to come, will be
looked upon as being a minor classic. Thanks Jim for one of the year's best suprises.
