CD Reviews

Cattle and Cane, wow
Christopher G. Huttman | Atlanta, GA USA | 05/30/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is really a great record. Anyone who likes the Manchester music of late 70's/80's should try it, as well as fans of guitar rock from any era. The drummer from Sleater-Kinney told me its her favorite Go-Betweens record and that just proves that she's an intelligent person :) Its hard to pick favorites of their records, but Cattle and Cane alone puts it up there with 16 Lovers Lane. Try it on and break it in (this release) and I don't think you'll be disapointed."
Go-Betweens' best early album
Michael Paulsen | Rancho Santa Margarita, CA USA | 07/15/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After the rough-around-the-edges of their debut album "Send Me a Lullaby" in 1981, Robert Forster and Grant McLennan found their feet on this excellent album. "Cattle and Cane" is the standout pop gem. The rest is edgy and still rough, but full of hooks. This album takes a couple of spins to sink in, but when it does it becomes an instant classic."
The most underrapreciated band ever?
Simone Oltolina | Morbio Inferiore, TI Switzerland | 04/28/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For some reason when asked to name the best Go-betweens' album, most people promptly come up with "Liberty Belle...". While I won't deny LB's unquestionable charm, I also think that "Before Hollywood" is the true milestone in their discography. The songs (and not only "Cattle and Cane which is generally regarded as the highlight on this album) are so beautiful that one cannot help but wonder why they didn't make it to the charts. Oh, actually it's not THAT hard to see why GB were denied massive success and were forced to settle for cult status: while being a pop band they had a thing for uncanny rhythms and melodies which made their records less accessible than those made by their peers, especially on the first listen. Obviously that's part of their charm as we, their fans, know ;-)"
