Great band. Great album, great music.
Honestly there is not one song here that I would consider weak. A brilliant mix of pop-like tunes, good melodies and a brilliant cynical vocal that are perfectly suited the post-punk music scene.
The lyrics are biting, but are resigned to cynical observation and snarls. There is no call for revolution. The attitude is more about surviving the times. Not much has changed in the 3o-so years since the album was recorded.
It is hard for me to judge this album because I really like it. The music has aged well but it has a vibe of the 80s about it. This is a good vintage but I’m not sure how the album would be accepted by newer listeners. I have not heard saxophone playing like you will on this album in any new songs for ages.
A great album.
