2.0 out of 5 stars No special place for me., 27 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In A Special Place: The Piano Demos For This Is The Sea (Audio CD)
Hmmmm. Not so sure about this, big Waterboys fan that I am.

Although it could be argued that any material uncovered is a benefit by being released, whilst listening to this I wondered what extra this really adds to the Waterboys listening experience. Yes you can hear tracks in a stripped back version, with occasionally interestingly different lyric choices, however I found that the tracks that sounded best were the ones that actually made it onto the 'This is the sea' album, and those that didn't, in this early form, just didn't really have anything special about them, (presumably why they got no further than demos). The end result was that I felt all I was paying for was this mediocre unknown material.

While I've consistently felt in the past that the extra tracks that have appeared on the re-packaged first 5 albums have been hidden gems, well worth being uncovered and brought to the public's ears, I don't share that sentiment for this collection.
