4.0 out of 5 stars An early contender for album of the year....?, 16 Feb. 2007
This review is from: Play With The Changes: Limited Edition (Audio CD)
4hero have certainly produced a 'mature' piece of work on this occasion & there are moments on this album that are simply breathtaking. When you get rubbish like Mika getting to no.1 in the charts, why are singles like "Morning Child" not getting the success & the plaudits it deserves?

It could have been a mistake opening an album with such a strong track, but the album changes directions so many times in its duration. That could have led to a lack of cohesion, but all the styles fit together well, the total sum being greater than the individual parts.

So why I hear you say, only 4/5, instead of 5/5? Well, for a start Amazon doesn't allow 4.5 or 4.75 to be given as a mark!

Also, this 'limited edition' version of the album has a track at the end called "Dedication To The Horse" (the Amazon tracklisting above is incorrect) which is a substandard Hendrix-guitar crunching & squealing homage. Might be somebody's cup of tea out there, but it really ruins the feel of the album for me.

Yeah yeah I know - in this age of CD-programming & I-podding, I can obviously programme my player not to play that track, but I'm a bit old-school & I love sticking on an album for 45 minutes, 60 minutes, whatever, & thinking, this is where I'm going for that length of time.

But that's enough ranting about the negative - your soundtrack for the summer is already here - buy it now!
