CD Reviews

Yup, Really Saying Something!
William | United States | 05/12/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A great debut from Bananarama, though they don't sound as confident as on their other albums this album is still a gem. From excellent songs like What a Shambles, to Shy Boy it is all here. The bonus tracks are good too. I would recommend this album to everyone, such good work!"
"Dive" Into "Deep Sea Skiving" !!!

"This reissue was a treat for many reasons...
First, being Bananarama's oldest album, the digital
remastering made quite an impact on the sound quality...
I compared "Shy Boy" from my original CD to this new one,
and was blown away by the sound difference !
This is a great album, one of Bananarama's best...

Some great singles came off of this CD,
"Shy Boy", "Really Saying Something", "Cheers Then"
and "Na Na Hey Hey (Kiss Him Goodbye)".

But what really makes this CD special is the
previously unavailable "B-Sides"...
As a Bananarama fan, it was a real treat to
hear a song that I've never heard before,
"He's Got Tact", which is very rare (and rather good) !
Also nice to hear some old vinyl "B-Sides" (Sounding crisp and new),
such as
"Tell Tale Signs" and a cover of The Sex Pistol's "No Feelings" !

Also, I must say, the packaging is great, they have retained all of
the "Ocean Theme" pictures, (as well as "Baby Pictures" of the group members)!
(These pictures were featured on the inner sleeve when the album was released WAY back in 1983).

"Deep Sea Skiving" is good clean fun !!!"
This is their first lp?

"Deep Sea Skiving, Bananarama's first lp sounds like seasoned well trained artists on their 3rd or 4th album.
Deep Sea Skiving is just amazing with fun songs and lyrics, and great collaberations (Terry Hall, Fun Boy 3), and gorgeous and haunting harmonies and shared lead vocals. Many strong songs on this first of many Bananarama albums to come. Great mix of fun, lament, sweetness and young love with and without pain. Karen, Sarah and Siobhan's angelic vocals mix and compliment without straining to be the lead. Their first few albums really showed their sisterhood. With that I say "Cheers Then"."
