"Voices Of Babylon is arguably the best overall
album by the vastly underrated
British power pop band,
Always melodic in their approach,
these guys can both rock hard,
and sing up a storm in the process.
Tony Lewis' slicing tenor and rock-solid
basswork is complimented by
John Spink's flavorful, majestic,
arpeggio-filled guitar playing.
And ofcourse, these 2 pillars of the group
have voices that blend breathtakingly well together
to form numerous catchy, harmony-flavored hooks.
These guys also write some really good, melodic material.
The CD's title cut, as well as The Night Ain't Over,
and My Paradise are signature tracks.
But there are at least several other gems as well.
If British-flavored, rock-solid power pop with
great vocal hooks is your thing,
these guys deliver the goods.
And...If you haven't heard their music yet,
"Voices Of Babylon" would be a good place to start."

"The Outfield remains one of the few '80s bands that managed to sound different. Probably why they weren't able to keep the momentum going vis-a-vis chart success. However, this album has some brilliant and diverse material, ranging from the catchy title track, to the anthem like My Paradise and other powerful songs like The Night ain't Over and Part of your Life. One track that stood out as an absolute departure from their original style is Reach Out. Surprisingly good pop/rock. Great underrated band that deserved more attention in its hey day. I believe they're coming back with a new album in the fall, and am looking forward to it. Never a dull moment with these guys."
Another good album, heavy on the guitar playing here!

"This album by the Outfield is another strong effort. If Play Deep won with the drumming and Bangin won with the catchy choruses, then Voices of Babylon was heavy on the guitars. Lots of it all over the album. The title song, I always have the volume turned up, because the lead guitars are so very superb here. It made for a remarkable three minutes. I still don't get it why it peaked at No. 26 in the Hot 100 in 1989 because it really stood out during that period where they were still playing 1988 songs on the radio--the year was only three to four months old. This is a very strong album for them--crank the volume up to 10 when you get to play it on the stereo!"
