    In a (music) world consumed by political statements muddied under fancy riffs, the greatly (re)welcomed Wedding Present strike again, taking the most basic human emotions and writing around them. Gedge and friends will never cease to amaze. How is it that one man's love life is so interesting to all...

    So pleased to get to hear new material after 7 years from this unique band!!!. Production is in line with previous late period work. If you don't know this band you're almost guaranteed to like them just after hearing a few songs. Don't miss them live in support for this new release.

    Best thing David Gedge has done since "Va Va Voom"; and one of the best Weddoes albums. Bravo!

    Inevitably, it sounds dated. [Feb 2005, p.102]
  2. A glorious union of Gedge's romantic past and his latter-day pursuit of lust.
  3. Take Fountain is a solid Wedding Present album, one that will satisfy those who have been following Gedge all along.
