CD Reviews

Kind of disappointing
Lovblad | Geneva, Switzerland | 08/09/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"While by no means catastrophic, this album has been greatly over-rated since the start. One the one hand, their greatest song, which was from that era, Fool's Gold, is not from the original version of the album and has been only added on later versions. That song was and is fantastic and does correspond to exactly what the hype was about: the perfect fusion of dance with rock estaetics. However the rest of the album is not that great. While one can see that they are talented, the sound is musddy and the playing is sloppy. While these characteristics are what makes a hypnotic song like Fool's Gold great, the remainder of the songs which are more straightforward in structure do suffer. The next record was actually somewhat better since production values were superior but since the band had been so much over-hyped, survival was not posssible and they split. Also a group such as the Happy Mondays were abloe at their best to convey much more energy in their songs."
Music beyond mere mortals

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album is so timelessly perfect that it simply could not have been constructed by mere mortals alone. My theory is that the Roses were practicing one night in a garage, dreaming of glory and stardom. Lucifer appeared and made a proposal. He would give them the talent to create some of the most perfect music ever heard, in exchange for their everlasting souls. The catch is that the talent was fleeting. After this magnificent album, the dark prince revoked it. Nothing like this would ever be heard again from the same musicians. He even went so far as to remove the gift of voice that he had granted to Ian Brown, who is now left partially tone-deaf. It remains to be seen whether Satan still has title to their souls. Regardless, this album is in the same league as Eine Kleine Nachtmusic, Abbey Road, and other precious few works of sheer artistic genius. Unfortunately, it does not share the same recognition as those works, due mainly to the deal with Satan. However, I believe that future generations will rediscover this album and treasure it as we do now with other classical greats who were ahead of their time."

"This is one of the rare collections of songs where you can buy the full album with confidence that you'll have more than 1 or 2 tracks to enjoy."
