Synopsis

Amazon.com
Psychedelic Furs lost their way hopelessly after the commercial high point of Mirror Moves (1984). Here Richard Butler rebuilds lost credibility with a creative new guitarist, Richard Fortus, and a sound more atuned to early Furs than the pop puppets they became. "Am I Wrong" is a compelling first single, and Butler's renewed confidence shines through on the superb "Change In The Weather." --Jeff Bateman

CD Reviews

Great, different music that Furs fans and non-fans will love
Author Brian Wallace (Mind Transmis | 09/30/1998
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I guess I lived in a cave in the 80s because I never heard too much of the Psychedelic Furs, Richard Butler's old band. But when I heard the Love Spit Love songs, "Change in the Weather" and "Am I Wrong," I fell in love with Richard Butler, Love Spit Love and the Psychedelic Furs. His voice is so different than any other singer and the music is different and exciting. The lyrics are intriguing. I had the hardest time finding this cd a few years back, and now it's easy to get here. I highly recommend that you give this band a chance. You won't be disappointed!"

"a classic that works on every level. Powerful, electrifying, moody, soothing, ecstatic songs performed by advanced musicians who seem inspired by their virtuoso leader.There is nothing stale or unoriginal on this work. It is explosive, accomplished rock like nothing else.Enjoyyyyyyyyyyyy!"
One of the great albums of the 1990's

"Richard Butler left his milleu of the "beautiful chaos" New Wave of the Psychedelic Furs and delved into a more resonant and less synthetic sound with this, the premiere album of Love Spit Love. It begins with a sonic assault of guitars and drums with "Seventeen" and ends with the somber, thrumming and dream-like "More" and inbetween these songs are more truly beautiful, sorrowful, and wonderful songs than anything Richard Butler has done before. Songs like "Green", "Half a Life", "Change in the Weather" and "Superman" are all incredibly evocative, sometimes louder and sometimes softer but all are powerful. The highlights of the album lie with the one hit yielded from the album "Am I Wrong", which is a song which digs deep into regret and melancholy and romance and the lyrical and musical brilliance of "Codeine". This album is very reminiscent of the works of another truly great band R.E.M., and I can't help thinking that some of the inspiration for this album are from R.E.M. songs. Just looking at the titles of some of the songs: "Superman", "Green" and "Wake Up" (R.E.M. having a song called "Get Up"). Maybe it's just coincidence, but one way or the other, this is one of the best albums of the 1990's and is a must-have for any Richard Butler fan."
