CD Reviews

Ethereal pop from Ian Broudie and Paul Simpson

"I first heard the Care on Manila, Philippines' legendary New Wave radio station XB-102, and I was immediately drawn in by the ethereal guitars and haunting vocal work on "Whatever Possessed You," an XB favorite. Songs such as "My Boyish Days" and "Flaming Sword" are like time machines that bring back to XB's glory years. The Care are very obscure in the U.S., but fans of the Wild Swans, Echo and the Bunnymen, Aztec Camera, Friends Again, the Lotus Eaters, Fra Lippo Lippi - all XB superstars - should have the buried treasures of "Diamonds and Emeralds" in their collection."

"the care....... this is one of my favorite new wave band since high school. they really have a different kind of music. paul simpson's voice is so so deep feels like it's coming from a deep well. care was very popular in manila & they always play this from radio station such as wxb 102, bm 105 & nu 107. my favorite songs are my flaming swords, boyish days & whatever possess you. i've been looking for this band for so long & when i asked the record store if they have this, they always said that they never know this band. so i tried to go to amazon & i did found it. care is what i call the best band in the 80's. also check out the wild swans, lightning seeds & the lotus eaters. they rock !!!!!!!! thanx amazon.com for having this album in your lists. this will go to my 80's collection. hope you have some good 80's band such as fra lippo lippi, marc almond's bittersweet, blue zoo."

"Listening to this album made me remember on how I got to first listen to Manila's first alternative radio station (102XB). I heard this particular song from that radio station and thought to myself "What was that?" From then on, I got hooked to the type of music XB played. The title of that song? Its "Whatever Possessed You.""
