Some good gems: 3 stars overall, but 5 for Weatherman!,
This review is from: A Teenage Opera: Original Soundtrack Recording (Audio CD)
I was prompted to review this because of the other review, which I found very interesting. I found it interesting in that it compared this to the likes of Sergent Pepper, SF Sorrow, & Ogden's nut (all of which I too own & LOVE).
I LOVE Weatherman, and the sounds are good. I confess to being unaware of this album's original form, but I do find the mentioned comparisons a little too much for even my imagination... Ogden's Nut it certainly is not (not as soulful or Stanley Unwin strange). SF Sorrow it isn't (the Pretty things are far more psychedelic). Better than Sergent Pepper?! I always rated Magical Mystery Tour higher than that, but even so... it is a comparison I do not agree with (though comparisons are always useful to locate oneself in). Still, if you like The Who's concept album The Who Sell Out, or if Tommy is more your bag, you may enjoy this more.
