CD Reviews

What the heck...
Bart Cabezas | Sydney, AUSTRALIA | 10/01/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"...Terry Hall was thinking when he decided teaming up with an actress and a jeweller and coming up with this fantastic album but whatever he was thinking that time, I'm glad he did it. Sadly, no one practically took notice when this great piece of work came out. Hall is a master of conveying the deepest emotions one can have from timely things like the ruins of a divorce. He can also get away with doing covers like Captain & Tenille's staple Love Will Keep Us Together (OK, let's give Blair & Anouchka equal credit as they are parts of the album as well!!). Ultra Modern Nursery Rhyme, (..err, the song) is a happy song cleverly done by the trio. Equally good is Beautiful People but the real knockout here is Missing. Missing has a real honesty in it, lyrics-wise anyways. Quite seldom for a man to be admitting he misses a separated wife and Hall just does it with utmost truth in it. Still very visible are the traces of his prior group, The Colourfield, which also mastered melo-dramatic tunes. This is probably one of the forgotten chapters of Terry Hall's discography but if you liked him eversince, add a dash of influence from Mamas & Papas...then maybe, just maybe,...you'll like this album."
