Promotional material with self-serving comments 10 août 2012
Par Peter Rasmussen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I was hoping for something like an independent review or journalism, but this book is more like a promotional item for the band/album.

It has large format band photos, chord charts for all the songs on the album, lyrics, band thoughts for each song, and some interview material at the beginning.

Here are the things I learned:
1. The core band (Kerr-vocals, Burchill-guitar, MacNeil-keyboards) were keen to shed their sound of being very rhythm section driven. They are the only ones that were interviewed for this book.
2. They were keen to work with Steve Lipson and it came across like Trevor Horn sort of came with the dual producer package.
3. Kerr mentioned that they like producers that are very involved in shaping and changing a band's sound.
4. The album was workshopped in a pretty remote part of Scotland with just the core trio.
5. Being a promotional type publication, it's pretty positive about everything.

These were interesting points when read along side the wikipedia entry which casts a more negative light on the creation of the album, its aftermath, and the roles of Giblin-Bass and Gaynor-drums. I was hoping that this publication would have been a more independent investigation on the creation of the album. It's a record that has always intrigued me. I know it hasn't aged well for lots of people, but I still like it. Perhaps mostly out of nostalgia. But I do think there are a lot of gorgeous songs on this record.
