Great album but beware...

...for some reason the song April Skies has a ridiculous slap bass segment of some random song stuck at it's end. It should'nt be there! Come on itunes, sort it out - i've had to go out and buy this album for real as a result. Good for the artist, not good for me.


I'm writing this review purely to counterbalance the three star review the other chap gave because he didn't like the bonus track...that is not a reason to give it a 3 star review. This album is a classic. Unsure? Download 'Happy when it rains' and 'April Skies' ... brilliant pop. I saw them live when I was a leather-clad-and-crimped teenager and I'm happy to say that I'm going to see them again in September in the UK (2007) ... ah, the sweet smell of nostalgia mixed with screaming feedback.
