TT- BIG TRASH

(5 out of 5 stars)
"THIS IS THE TT ALBUM THAT SHOULD HAVE MADE THE TRANSITION FROM 80'S BAND TO JUST A GREAT BAND. UNFORTUNATLY IT DIDN'T. THERE ARE SOME GREAT SONGS ON HERE. SUCH AS "BOMBERS IN THE SKY" - AND IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY IT CAME OUT DURING THE GULF WAR? BUT I DO REMEMBER HEARING IT IN EVERY CLUB BACK IN '91. ANOTHER GREAT SONG HERE IS "THIS GIRLS ON FIRE"- WHICH I THINK SHOWCASES TOM BAILY'S GREAT VOCALS. "SUGAR DADDY", THE ONLY HIT SINGLE OFF THIS ALBUM IS YOUR BASIC CATCHY QUIRKY TT SONG. TO THIS DAY, I STILL LISTEN TO THIS ALBUM. BOY, DO I MISS THE THOMPSON TWINS."
Only Queer is better

"This CD is really good. It's stayed in my rotation for years. It's the next best Thompson Twins CD (I own or have owned them all). Queer is best and Quick Kick and Side Step would be a distant third. They transformed into Babble after this CD and both Ether and The Stone are up in the same class as Queer and Big Trash."
This one deserves more praise than it gets...

""Big Trash" -- though not the Twins' best work, was a much-improved follow up to the disappointing "Close to the Bone". This CD began the transformation of Tom & Alannah actually pushing aside the record companies and popularity, and beginning to record music they enjoyed. From the catchiness & fun of the top 40 hit "Sugar Daddy", the guitar driven "Bombers in the Sky" (which cleverly sampled "Kamikaze" from their "Side Kicks" album, and used briefly in the movie Gremlins 2), the soft-core eroticism of the title track, to the exuberant bounciness of "Salvador Dali's Car" and "Wild" -- this album shows the Twins' having fun, relying less on keyboards, and returning to their guitar-based roots. Even tossing in a special appearance by Deborah Harry, who is a hoot on "Queen of the U.S.A.".Trust me... this CD is definitely a keeper for anyone that appreciates what the Thompson Twins have to offer."
