All kinds of win!

We are 6 weeks away from Christmas, 20 years ago I would be thrilled at the prospect of Sounds getting ready, for their 'bumper issue' end of year review. Since late 1991I have been denied that pleasure, so I have my own little review now, a time to reflect back on how much dosh has been wasted and / or wisely dished on albums, ep's and rmxs.

So, in my "Best of 2009" review , where does Recessionista rank in my 'top 50' of the year? It's not gonna be in my Top 3 , that was locked on Oct 10th - Would an earlier release date have smashed it in there? quite possibly !

On 1st play, it was cut #2 that instantly caught my attention - 'Crush' A delicately layered intro -with a smooth dream like transition into opening lyrics,
head spun indeed, just like the new girl attending class mid-term. Then the chorus, it hits and grasps me like Mikk Berenyi & Emma Anderson on breeze & De - Luxe. It leaves me dreaming of Sarah Cracknell covering and dedicating this song to me...

Gen Y keeps up the awesome tempo!

Who Said , in my opinion is the stand out track , and is what I imagine Milo Aukerman would sound like if he was a bird!

The above is a small review, from my 5th listen, I could go deeper & would & mention Ian Astburyesque licks galore on some openers...BUT , The Mood Swings deserve their own plaudits, and not thinly veiled refs to other influences that I feel I hear .

Summary : Probably one of tightest flowing rhythm sections I've heard this year, with a ryth/lead guitar & vox combo that has not only surprised me, but has me fascinated for new releases and the satisfaction of having a quality back catalogue to explore.

This is in my top ten LPs of the year, the bonus is, I get to see them live as well next week, as you all WILL!

So, yes.....BUY BUY BUY, but ALSO ...GIVE! I don't envisage anyone not appreciating a track or two being in there XMAS stocking/ XMAS inbox ! - better than any shite on offer from macys or target!

Lotta fun
