8 of the 10 songs are flat-out great.
Bill/NYC
Forster offers a few great, upbeat tunes with the simple but engaging "Then You Tell Me" and the driving "I Just Get Caught Out."
Lypo Suck
TALLULAH, the bands' fifth album, is one of their finest.

"Spirit of a Vampyre" is one of the most unjustly ignored songs in the Go-Betweens canon... It and the following "Clarke Sisters" are masterpieces by Robert Forster, but only the latter has gotten due recognition. "Vampyre," however, needs a boost in this ongoing swim in the dialogue about a band (See? I can refrain from gushing . . . for a second). The song opens with the absolutely classic line "I was slowly dying in a clinic just outside of L.A." over a jagged, nearly swaggering electric guitar riff. It is the comment of a cynic, a jaded hipster, a vampyre, full of exagerated self-importance. And the cracking open of this veneer begins in the very next line: "You came and saw me (thank you) that picked me up straight away." And, so we go on our way toward enlightenment, the richness of living, the end of late-night fears and ultimately, freedom. There is a glimpse of it in the first chorus ("That's when it starts") as the music shifts from the riff rock into an echoey, nearly psychedelic 60s chamber rock of resolving chords and background singers in breathy sighs, "Ahhhhh" (That's when it starts) and in the end, after the second verse, when all self has been given over to the open nature of love and possiblity ("I'm in deep, so blue with everything around you") the floodgates open, the resolving never ends, the sighing never ends, the chorus becomes open-ended to the fade and these final lyrics, full of acute perception, evocative, cryptic, nostalgic, sensuous and, ultimately, ecstatic:

That's when it starts. That's when it starts.
The electric train of soft cylinder parts
The dull mask of action on circus staff
Mobility the hood of the Hindu scarf
Together at last
Making jewellery at last.
St. James Park

For this alone, "Tallulah" is worth embracing.

The album is a bit of a disappointment, especially when measured against "Liberty Belle," but it contains two of the best songs the Go-Betweens (or any other 80s band) ever did. "Right Here" and "Bye Bye Pride" are the GB's at an absolute peak -- melodies, harmonies, bittersweet exuberance, gut-wrenching singing, pop at its pinnacle. If you're lucky enough to hear them when you're young and impressionable or going through something momentous in your life, they will touch you indelibly. Nothing else on the album matches these two jewels (a few tracks sound a bit dated in an unfortunate, 80s kind of way), but it's still worth picking up. That said, the "Bellavista Terrace" best-of collection might be the place to start for the uninitiated. It's a little skimpy and I could quibble with the selection, but any disc that has "Right Here", "Bye Bye Pride," "Head Full of Steam", "Streets of Your Town" and "Spring Rain" is a must. If you want a coherent, consistent album, try "Liberty Belle", a true masterpiece.

Mixing the rhythmic stiffness and perverse amelodicism of the least user-friendly parts of "Spring Hill Fair" with their penchant for shameless beauty (that would dominate 1989's fine "16 Lovers Lane"), "Tallulah" is the Go-Betweens' toughest and finest work. "Spirit of a Vampyr" and "The House Jack Kerouac Built" detail personal anguish with angular music to match, but "Right Here," "Bye Bye Pride," and "Hope Then Strife" lace realistic depictions of relationships in-and-out-of-crisis (always the Go-Betweens' coup de grace) with absurdly magnificent chord changes. The additional instruments (viola/oboe -- thanks Amanda!) are the flourishes that make it even more memorable. Thanks for reissuing this!

The Go-Betweens were one of the few rock bands who just got better and better with each new album. After SEND ME A LULLABY, their charming but somewhat limp debut, all of their subsequent releases were major classic pop masterpieces. TALLULAH, the bands' fifth album, is one of their finest. The long standing lineup of Grant McLennan, Robert Forster, Lindy Morrison and Robert Vickers was augmented here by multi-instrumentalist Amanda Brown, who added immeasurably to the group's ever growing proficiency and fullness of sound.
A great place to start for Go-Betweens' neophytes, TALLULAH contains some of the band's strongest and most delightful songs. The glorious "Right Here" and "Bye Bye Pride" are the album's most melodic and pop oriented songs, of course, but all of the others (especially "Hope Then Strife", the desparing and haunting final track) provide almost perfect examples of the group's beguiling and quirky music. The only true problem child, "Cut It Out", has received a great deal of flack over the years but it has an absolutely terrific chorus that irrefutably breaks the song free from the constraints of mediocrity.
It may not be The Go-Betweens' ultimate masterpiece--that would arguably be 16 LOVERS LANE--but TALLULAH is full of great songs and comes highly recommended for all fans of lush, ravishingly beautiful guitar rock.

The Go Betweens has been in my heart since the 80's. I've never got the chance to get hold a copy of their recordings then due the fact that it was never released here. But now you can find it here on the rack of Tower Records!

Right here and Bye bye pride were just two of the songs which remind me of my high school days. The other tracks were a breath of fresh air and introduced me songs i've never heard off from The Go Betweens.
