This albbum is better that anything Cinerama released (although I though Torino was a great record) and some of the last releases that TWP where a little dissapointing for me. This record makes up for this and is well worth to buy.
The album is a strong set of songs and a solid releases from start to finish. InterState 5 is a powerful pounding song (a great driving song)that shows TWP at their best. The extended mix breaks into a south western/blueman group type instrmental that is brilliant. There is likely a short movie to made just for this song alone. It really gets your imagination pumping.
Further north than you is a great pop song well wriiten and catchy all the way through. Mars Sparkes down is a downbeat song remins me a bit of the seamonsters record. Don't touch that dial is also a great downbeat song with strong emotional drives.
Track 7 It's for you sounds like it came straight off the Bizarro record and is a lively bit of fun.
Even if you have been dissapointed with TWP or Cinerama in the past this is the time to make ammends. TWP have delivered a solid album that will be memorable. I recomend to buy this record.
Also the good news is the US tour and they have been plying alot of oldies including My Favorite Dress, Once More, Kennedy, Brassnect on the European circuit so I expect that we will receive the same here. The US tour dates are.Read more ›
As Interstate 5 kicked in my first thought was that they still manage to get some of the greatest drum sounds ever recorded. As a musician/producer I live for killer recordings, especially drums, and WP have never dissapointed. The second surprise was Gedge's voice. If I didn't know it was WP that I was listening to I may not have recognized him right away. He seems to have shed a bit of his accent and now, where his voice used to be somewhat buried on previous albums, his vocals are pushed forward in the mix. He's voice has matured wonderfully and the listener can now hang on every one of his excellent lyrics. And speaking of lyrics, I noticed that a previous reviewer here at Amazon was struck by the same line as I - "how can I just shake his hand when it's been all over your skin". When I heard that for the first time it was like a knife in the chest. Even now after the 10th listen it still causes brings an ache.
I could sit here all night and write praise for Take Fountain. The production is amazing, the songs are fantastic, the musicianship is beautiful. It's a glorious album and I'm sure I will be obsessed with it for quite some time. Do yourself a favor and buy a copy. You won't regret it.
