CD Reviews

Finally, The Power of Love on CD!
Eric Hamen | Hilliard, OH United States | 09/09/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album, along with "Women and Captains First", are the cream of the Captain Sensible non-Damned catalog. These songs are pure pop, largely cowritten by Robyn Hitchcock and produced by Tony Mansfield. The album has a breezy simplicity that really highlights Sensible's pop sensibility. It is also a more 'direct' album than "Women and Captains First". This Cherry Red release contains some great b-sides and for the first time contains the LP in it's entirety."
Covers amazing stylistic ground with ease and flair

(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Power of Love is less varied and novelty filled than Women and Captains First, but nonethe less contains a few subtler gems: "It's Hard to Believe I'm Not" and "Secrets" both co-written with Robyn Hichcock, "Stop the World" and Glad it's All Over", all distinguished by Sensible's engaging vocals and silly/serious lyrics. Remasted, resequenced from the original vinyl running order, along with non-lp b-sides and singles."
