CD Reviews

A must for fans
Glenn R. Boston | Silver Spring, MD United States | 05/29/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The bottom line: If you enjoy Robyn Hitchcock, you're going to want this CD. You should buy it; you will not regret it. The material here, with two exceptions, is not new--it's reinterpreted. These sessions are sparser, leaner, even less polished. It works. Most of these versions are just different enough to be compelling. ("52 Stations" is a good example.) The new tunes are "Open the Door, Homer," a cover of a Bob Dylan song (very good), and "Banana Boat Song," ("Dayo"), which is just silly. The sound quality and production are good. My only complaint is the song selection. It's a shame Robyn chose to cover the mediocre "Lady Waters and the Hooded One" instead of, say, "Strawberry Mind." In fact, it seems to me that "Fegmania!" is slighted in this collection, which is unfortunate. If you're curious about Robyn Hitchcock, skip this and pick up "Greatest Hits" (a bit of a misnomer as there are no hits on it!) If you are already a fan, especially a hard-core fan, don't hesitate. Order this today. You won't regret it."
Great for fans, okay for beginners

"Not a place to start, but fans will want the acoustic band versions, which comprises a little less than half the album. Some of the others sound very much like the album versions. The 2 "new" songs are fun but nothing to die for."
