iTunes Review

By 1986, The Go-Betweens’ Robert Forster and Grant McLennan had shed much of their early awkwardness and grown into a world-class songwriting team. Their fourth album’s standout tracks—“Spring Rain,” “The Wrong Road,” and “Head Full of Steam”—would all become staples of their songbook, while other tunes expanded their sound with lilting strings, vibraphone, accordion, and bassoon. Sophistication and desperation intertwine in the band’s comfortable jangle and harmonizing, but there’s still some youthful angst biting away on “In the Core of a Flame.”

A High Watermark

Simply one of the greatest pop albums of all time. It's both their most consistent album and their quirkiest. Anyone drawn in by the band's latest reunion album ("Oceans Apart") should give this a listen sometime. For some insane reason, the brilliant song "Spring Rain" was featured in the movie "Kingpin."

One of my favorites from the late 80s or ever....I wore the cassette into a state of unplayability. I don't get though why iTunes has this terrible artwork though--locate a scan of the original if you're using album cover mode.

I love the track The Wrong Road so much. It's so wistful and beautifully done. I just found this band and am in love with the romantic and truthful sound. Glad I finally found them but sorry it wasn't sooner. Hard to believe they eluded me this long.

The Go-Betweens were perhaps the quintessential cult band of the '80s: they came from an exotic locale (Brisbane, Australia), moved to a major recording center (in their case, London) in a sustained bid to make a career out of music, released album after album of music seemingly tailor-made for the radio in spite of their having little use for contemporary Top 40 musical/lyrical formulas, and earned considerable critical praise and a small but fervent international fan base. Although the Go-Betweens...
