UK's REM... only much better,
This review is from: Bang! (Audio CD)
I remember thinking when it came out that "World Party" were the UK's answer to REM... only much better.
This and their previous album "Goodbye Jumbo", I would recommend as essential purchases. The influences, such as Dylan, Prince, Beatles and Stones are obvious. However the song writing and melodies and hooks, overcome these comparisons enough to produce really original albums.
This is a grower of an album which stays in your memory, due largely to superb song writing.
And of course "Is it like Today" is one of the greatest songs of the decade.
