Catchy, fun and nutty. The best album of 1985 14 juillet 2010
Par Scott Davies - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
When many bands start with great success, they can often encounter what is called the Sophomore Slump. This refers to the difficulty in coming up with a worthy follow up to their previous effort. No such thing can be said of King. Bitter Sweet was a superior album to King's great debut album, Steps In Time.

Bitter Sweet had three singles released, all of which were chart hits to varying degrees. 'Alone Without You' is probably the weakest song on the album, but still a bit of harmless pop. 'The Taste Of Your Tears' was a more mid-tempo number, but with a good hook. 'Torture' showcased some of Paul King's wonderful goofball lyrics, placing them against an upbeat and hooky background.

Elsewhere on Bitter Sweet, other highlight include the highly catchy and mildly reggae-esque 'Platform One', the quirky and nutty fun of 'Sugar Candy Mountain Buddhas' and 'Mind Yer Toes', and the straight forward catchy rock of 'These Things'.

I was involved in all aspects of the Bitter Sweet release, and ensured the track listing covered everything essential from the era that would fit on one CD. This included the unique extended version of 'The Taste Of Your Tears', which had only been released on the very rare original UK CD issue of Bitter Sweet from the mid-80's. Various other mixes and versions of songs appear as bonuses as well. I included some of the single sleeve covers in the booklet, as well as some band photos from poster sleeves. When I performed the audio remastering, I tried to retain a balance between offering a good volume without sacrificing much in the way of dynamic range, which is far too common place these days.

King ended as a band after this album failed to make much impact in the US, which is said to be what Paul King was aiming for. But at least King ended on a very high note.

It's finally released!! 22 janvier 2008

How nice it was to browse through amazon to find that this forgotten gem has FINALLY been released on cd. In all honesty, Bitter Sweet isn't quite as good as Steps In Time, but the tracks Alone Without You, Platform One and 2 M.B. alone make this good reason to purchase this disc. Kind of odd though, now that this disc is released, it seems they've pulled Steps In Time from the offering. It's ashame the group didn't carry on, I believe there could have been a lot more to offer. Paul King's solo effort was a 2 star at best. But Bitter Sweet was definitely a bitter sweet ending for a band with a short lived history.

I was excited to Finally be able to get King Bittersweet on Cd. I especially enjoyed the Remixes-it took me right back to the 80's clubs I frequented in the 80's in Phoenix, Az. The music is fun and upbeat and still sounds "fresh" today.

"From a circus ring to a band of gold" 9 janvier 2013
Par mwreview - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Bitter Sweet is a fun, pleasant, feel-good album and a hidden '80s gem. There is not a dud in the bunch, but this reviewer's favorites are the contagiously danceable "Alone Without You" and "Torture," and the relaxing, hum-along-to "The Taste Of Your Tears." It has that retro, '80s soulful pop sound but still sounds fresh because these songs are pretty rare and not heard on the radio--at least in this reviewer's neck of the woods.
