Customer Review

on February 22, 2007
I have always loved this albim ever since i sat listening to a review copy a journo friend lent me, while sitting on the stairs of my then flat 20 years ago...The triffids were an incredible group, who came a long way in a short time...from Treeless Plain to this was only 3 years and this is truely great. There is a 'majestic sweep' to the songs that is triely emotive. There is a slight 80's style prodiction on Kelly's Blues, but that is about it and songs such as Open for You and Save What You Can are just great. Add to that some B sides- personal favourite Region Unkown, which i have long wanted to get hold of on Cd and you have a classic....And, if you don't like the producion of the original, then the bonus CD of Demos tells you what the album could have sounded like had they done it 'In the Pines' style...here the sheer quality of the songs stands out for itself...alas the public in 1987 preferred less quality faire, but buy this and you will own a timeless classic.

The other reissues 'Born Sandy Devotional' and 'In the Pines' are also excellent, with the latter slightly more interesting, it will be interesting to see what happens when a revamped Treeless Plain and Black Swan hit the streets in the future...maybe 'Plain' will give some insights into the roots of the Triffids...
