CD Reviews

Sweet catatonia!
Jove | Sweden | 01/06/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am a big fan of Catatonia and this album is the reason. The first song I ever heard from Catatonia was Mulder & Scully from this record. The album is great from start to finish with great songs like "Road Rage", "Don't Need The Sunshine" and "Strange Glue". The singer, Cerys Matthews, has a very unique and sexy voice and the lyrics are skilfully written! It's one of the best albums ever made, buy it!"
Great album that grows on you

"The album that shot Catatonia into the spotlight in the late 90's, 'International Velvet' contained their two radio hits "I Am the Mob" and "Mulder & Scully", as well as other strong tracks "Road Rage", "Goldfish & Paracetamol" and "Don't Need the Sunshine". This album definately grows on you and takes a few listens for most of the songs to shine, one of the few albums I can play all the way through, every time."
I prefer "Dead from the Waist..."

"Cerys Matthews has an amazing voice.Is it clear as a bell? Sometimes.
Is it growly as gravel? Sometimes.
Is it girlish as a nursery rhyme? SometimesIs it strong as steel? Always.
Is it sexy? Invariably.I consider this a slightly less mature effort than "Dead from..down" but this is a notable warming up thereto. I very much enjoyed the singles "Mulder and Scully", "Road Rage", and "Game On." It's good britPop."
