Not something to be avoided by any means.
Andre S. Grindle
Apart from the odd exception like "In the Morning", this album sounds like a group that has lost the the ability to craft a great song.
Ses
It is really a shame that Squeeze has been largely forgotten since their Top 10 days a couple of decades ago.

Squeeze's moment in the pop music sun lasted a few brief years in the late 70s and early 1980s, the era of Power Pop when albums like East Side Story brought fans into contact with one of the most appealing combinations of fresh melodies, driving beats and clever, vivid lyric writing that there is. Comparisons were made by some critics to Lennon/McCartney. Then all the attention went away, and the group continued to do the same thing--in fact to get better and better at it, to less and less acclaim. Somehow, critics would rather turn your attention toward vomitous, trendy archfiends like Marilyn Manson than perform a quality assurance function, which would place this band near the top every year. Excellence is apparently boring--but not to you, hopefully.
Now Squeeze doesn't even have a proper US record label, and this album is on a teeny weeny label, and so it may not get the distribution it needs, nor airplay. Still, don't pass it by. It is as good as their last one, "Ridiculous," and better than the one before "Some Fantastic Place," and yet it is different. They've hired a new rhythm section, and this seems to have recharged their musical interests, so the album has a fresher, sharper edge musically. Guitar playing seems a little more intriguing, the beats a little more unpredictable. It's a fun record, and very danceable, and the melodies and choruses are quite sticky. Best songs are "Bonkers" and the the title track, but it's consistently good throughout, even profound in spots.
We should be grateful that such a high-quality act continues to soldier on without much encouragement -- Squeeze is an excellent role model for your kids.

Domino is a fine album that will never be as popular as it deserves to be. The Title song is incredibly catchy and addicting. Glen Tilbook's vocals across the album are spirited. It is an upbeat album that will please old-time and new squeeze listeners alike.

It is really a shame that Squeeze has been largely forgotten since their Top 10 days a couple of decades ago. This is a fantastic pop record, and I agree by and large with the initial reviewer...although as far as being an example for kids, its hard to agree with that considering the themes of drunkeness and infidelity - which however, are part of the unique Squeeze 'persona' and do make for compelling emotions and storytelling, emoted by Glenn Tillbrook in his inimitable way. Two of the songs, 'Without You Here' and 'Short Break', are only OK, 'Play On' is just good, but the rest range from excellent to great, my favorite being 'Donkey Talk', which is a beautiful and wistful picture of the change in a relationship where the old magic is disappearing - and there is 'nothing left to talk about' - extremely moving! Lots of Steely Dan fans who were looking for more melodically from their comeback release might find what they were looking for both here and in the other 90's Squeeze releases.

While never attaining the commercial status they deserved, Squeeze can still put together a great album. Most bands can trace their creative high point to their early days, however, "Domino" proves that older, well-established groups can still be creative. "Domino" is perhaps their strongest album of the decade. "Some Fantastic Place" could be a contender. However, I found the band's most recent rhythm section to be their strongest in many years. The drumming was excellent. The percussion and bass lines melded well. Chris Holland added nice keyboards. In terms of songs, I most enjoyed the following songs: "Play On" "What's Wrong With This Picture?" "Donkey Talk" "Sleeping With A Friend" and "Short Break." Personally, I found Chris Difford's vocals on "Short Break" menacing, while the band's instrumentation helped to create the eerie atmosphere of the song. If you enjoy strong pop music...this is it.

I have literally just finished listening to this for the first time and am here to tell you that this is a very good album. To be honest I wasn't too interested in even listening to this in the couple of years it has been out. Just goes to show you I suppose. Anyway, this is a collection of nice tunes with the trademark humorous/regretful lyrics of Chris Difford once again delivered by the wonderful voice of Glenn Tilbrook.
The playing is sharp, with nice simple drumming, which is always welcome. "Sleeping with a friend" borrows the familiar tune from "Walk on by". Other standout tunes are "To be a Dad", "Without you here", and "Play on". However, "In the morning", despite being a good song, has a slightly unoriginal 80's feel about it, and the Difford sung "Short break" is not overly impressive. The album as a whole is not greatly inventive or radically different, but shows Messrs. D&T doing what they do best - writing articulate, melodic songs.
To the best of my knowledge, this is the last album that Difford and Tilbrook would record as Squeeze. If that's the case then thanks guys, for a good one.
