Smooth... Very Smooth

"Smooth... very smooth as always with China Crisis. If you're interested in hearing the sound of China Crisis, this is a good collection to start with. This is a 2 Cd set: Disc One is Unplugged, while the other is their latest full album release after a long rest from the music scene. Let's start with Cd 1. Let me tell you, I've been listening to China Crisis for so long (like 15 years) and this is the first time I heard them play live. They are simply fantastic! Most notable songs in CD 1 are "African and White", "Everyday the Same", "No more Blue Horizons","It's Everything", "Good Again", and "Diary of a Hollow Horse". All praises to the horn and violin accompaniment. Marvelous work! I was hoping that the songs "You Did Cut Me" and "Bigger the Punch I'm Feeling" would be here too. But then this Cd in itself is great! CD 2 is a studio album. Notice most of the songs in CD 2 have their unplugged version in CD 1. It's still worth listening to the studio versions so you can appreciate the improvisations the band made in their live performance. Notable songs for CD 2 are "Hard to be Around" and "Tell me What It is". I really miss China Crisis. I hope they come out with a new album soon. Get this CD. Highly recommended."
