Why This Album Is So Great:

Prefab Sprout, along with Pet Shop Boys, are probably the best pop music the world has seen the last decade. The great melodies, the air-filled arrangements and the melancholy is there - three ingredients that are vital in long lasting pop music.  I actually discovered Prefab Sprout quite late (around 1993) but I have since then used their music in all kinds of emotional soul searching. I recommend this, actually...If there is to be any "buts" about Prefab Sprout, it is that sometimes the music lacks a little bit of edge. I probably only say this because my taste in music has been moving toward more rocky and alternative styles the last couple of years. But within the field of pop music, Prefab Sprout are still one of the masters. This album contains quite a lot of songs and even though they all move within the same tone, they are very varied in style and atmosphere. I think the album has the best sound of all Prefab Sprout's albums since this is where they really found themselves. If you're not familiar with the band, an alternative to this album would be their Best Of from 1992.

Overall Rating (on a scale from 1 to 10): 8
