CD Reviews

Two words: Underrated Masterpiece
Darren Robbins | Studio City, CA United States | 05/11/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first bought this record when I was a wee lad, blowing a weeks worth of lunch money on an unknown band whose album had somehow found its way to the local, small-town five-and-dime. From the moment I dropped the needle on this platter, I was transfixed. The songs were all laced with sublime guitars, with hooks that have a way of sneaking up on you, and a trade-off of male/female vocals that kept things interestingly intriguing. I pictured a white blues/rock combo in 1960's Britain playing a smoky club filled with hipsters of the day, dressed in mini skirts and Beatle boots, dancing their collective {behinds} off, like a scene out of "Blow Up". My particular favorites were then and, to this day, still are "Week Days", "Walls And Foundations" and "Let's Take A Walk", which is the best song the Yardbirds never wrote. Of course, Annie's vocal turn on "One Step Nearer The Edge" is a great display of her vocal talents at the time.Pop music this intelligent and well-crafted often goes unnoticed by the masses, but the fact that Dave and Annie went on to worldwide success with Eurythmics is at least proof that not all worthy artists go unnoticed. Coombes may have lacked the egotistical bravado and showmanship of most pop stars of the day, but his talent was undeniable.Do yourself a favor and drop the {money} necessary to own this album. You'll thank me later."
WOW! I like this better than the 2 "best of's"

"An excellent and necessary addition for the die hard Eurythmics fan. I esp. enjoy Walls & Foundations, Round Round Blues, and I'm Going to Change My Mind (NONE of which are on the "Greatest Hits" albums). BUY IT B4 IT'S TOO LATE!"
Marvelous Psychedelic pop!!

"I was into the Tourists before the Eurythmics came about. But this LP and the OOP Reality Effect made me sure Annie Lennox was going to be a major star. My favorite is "One step over the edge"If you like itelligent psychedelic pop played with upbeat enthusiasm. then get this album!"
