CD Reviews

Adventures in a Yorkshire landscape
Js Clark | Doncaster, England | 10/04/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album was, I believe, released solely through a small record store in Wakefield I used to frequent in my youth. An album photo was taken in a park near where I lived. One of the real powers for me of Bill Neslon's music is the way he takes the sights and sounds of his (and my) native Wakefield and transfigures them, weaving images with wonderful, hanting sounds. Although not featured on this album my favourite, Adventures In A Yorkshire Landscape is an audio landscape painting of my native county that is so evocative it always -- ALWAYS -- makes my spine tingle."
The Art School Dance goes on forever...

(5 out of 5 stars)

"As legend would have it, this was the album that Bill recorded in fellow band member Richard Brown's bedroom. Dang, you can even hear a toilet flushing in the background. While the album is ten thousand light years from the techno wizardry of Roy Thomas Baker, who produced Futurama, it remains a true classic for any serious fan of the Man. The songs are indeed more inclined towards folk, but you can certainly hear Bill's guitar style developing, and his soloing is most impressive.I still have the vinyl and the Teenage Archangel/Jets At Dawn single that came along later, also on Smile, but the CD is infinitely more convenient, and highly recommended. Go for it."
