    Over the top reviews, an upcoming gig and the long forgotten pleasure of having listened to them in the 90's prompted me to buy this Over the top reviews, an upcoming gig and the long forgotten pleasure of having listened to them in the 90's prompted me to buy this album. At first i was left wondering where the TCS sound of old was. It all seemed too polished. The title track was a little too immediately listenable. However, after the nth time listening the rest of the tracks started to reveal their subtle understated strengths. I kept coming back and re-appreciating this album. To me that's the hallmark of a great album. I'd give it a 10 but i live in hope that this could get better Very rewarding listening. Comparisons to the smiths are not unfounded...but this does stand solidly on it's own ground. Full Review »
