Reviews

A C&W-tinged pop number underpins the band's characteristic massed gospel vocal style complete with jangling, melodic guitars and she sort of chorus which they patently lacked on their debut LP Speak.

It's always a treat when a song comes along that I can't wait to review. Impossible not to detect a Fine Young Cannibals influence on this production that's been the biggest buzz record for the past couple of weeks.
