CD Reviews

Edgier than the Go-Betweens
Claire M. Wilson | auburn, al | 07/29/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Having been a huge Go-Betweens fan in the 80s, I bought this on cassette when it was first released. I have listened to it on and off over the years, and the songs stand up exceptionally well. Forster was always a bit edgier than McLennon, and the dark side of his muse is much in evidence on the title track and "Dear Black Dream." But this darker side is counterpointed gorgeously by uplifting melodies, as in the superb "I've Been Looking for Somebody." Perhaps the Go-Betweens reunion will lead to renewed interest in Forster's solo work."
Best RF Solo Outing...
Travis Dubya McGee Bickle | Texas Quail Hunting Camp | 02/22/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"...though, I gotta admit, I'm a big, honkin' GBs fan, and consequently, love all their solo efforts. This, though, exhibits the most solid and consistent songcraft. Particularly pleasing are "Baby Stones" and "Is This What You Call Change", an excellent rejoinder, by the way, to all the cliches about "life being change", etc....

It is apparently only available as an import now, more's the pity, but if you're susceptible to the GBs magic, this is definitely worth seeking out."
