4.0 out of 5 stars More songs about cowboys and campfires, 12 Jan. 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Gunman And Other Stories (Audio CD)
Far from being a country and western CD as the artwork and titles would lead you to believe, this is as strong a collection as the Sprouts have issued in many a year.
Lack of consistency has always been a Sprout failing, particularly with the rather flat and uninspiring 'Andromeda Heights'. On 'Gunman' Paddy MacAloon rediscovers his yearning but focused romantic sensibility and fires off a sure fire set of perfect love songs. Much stronger than anything since 'Langley Park' it avoids the sprawl of 'Jordan' and the sameiness of 'Andromeda'.
'Wild Card', 'The Gunman' and 'Cornfield Ablaze' are pure pop perfection, finding Paddy in fine voice and on 'Love will find someone for you' he has crafted his finest moment since 'Nightingales'.
The band is well served by some inspired players, particularly Carlos Alomar who's elegant presence lends a deeper dimension to the overall sound.
Well worth the price of admission and a must buy for all Sproutheads.
