CD Reviews

"Listen to This!!!"
C. Benson | Congested, CO USA | 02/12/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the strongest overall Dexy's album, a classic in my mind. Whereas the first album was under-produced raw soul, the 2nd irish-gypsy folk music, this is the laid-back, lounge and have a sip of wine album. Bear with Kevin's often indistinguishable talking and get through to the real music. I challenge you to find more beautiful music than on "My National Pride" or "I Love You". And for a what should have been a huge single "This is What She Likes" more than fills the bill.

I have over 1200 CD's in my music collection and this is definitely one of my favorite. Once again and all together now-"bear with Kevin's mumbling and listen to the music!""
Somewhat soulful

"Kevin Rowland ruined his career twice through poor sartorial choices. (This one is the first, see "My Beauty," his solo record for the second) Doffing the rags and overalls, Dexy's this time opts for Brooks Brothers. This was not a completely arbitrary choice, as the music itself is more sophisticated on this record. Rowland is still a soul revivalist first and foremost, but this time he can actually afford to recreate the sounds in his head.

Many people who's opinions I respect think this is one of the greatest records ever made. I doubt that you will get that impression on the first spin, but there is definitely something to this record, and it's revival is well-earned since it was criminally overlooked on first release.

Kevin Rowland thinks it's the greatest record he made."
Kevin finally found the beauty

"Kevin reinventing himself for the third time. Kevin wanting to be Van Morrison. You can say he's a bitter man...and in a way I think it's true. Probably, one of the most underrated album of the 80,s. Simply great. Do you need three good reasons to get it? "this is what she's like", "knowledge of beauty", and above all "Reminisce (part two)". Van would be proud of it. Kevin should be proud of it. "...it didn't last. and it happened that my feelings changed before hers...""
