Customer Reviews

It would have made her cringe!
James W. Doyle
The decision to add a second disc is a nice addition for this remastered/reissued classic album.

One can certainly hope the music world is beginning to learn from her.

Finally after a decade of limbo Kirsty MacColl's masterpiece "Titantic Days" is available again. Calling it a masterpiece isn't hyperbole. Written in the aftermath (mostly with Mark Nevin but also in collaboration with The Smiths' Johnny Marr)of her divorce, this terrific album stands as MacColl's most complete, compelling album. Ironically, it sold nothing when it was released which is too bad; it needs to be rediscovered by a public starved for quality not quantity; it needs to be reappraised as one of the finest albums of the 90's.

The first album is unaltered; it appears exactly as it did when first released. The original classic 11 tracks are on disc one. From the stunning single "Can't Stop Killing You" to the majestic "Soho Square" and the beautiful "Angel" it still holds up more than a decade later.

The decision to add a second disc is a nice addition for this remastered/reissued classic album. The second disc has a beautiful piano mix of "Angel" (with some sythesizer effects and tamborine also decorating the song)with MacColl's lovely voice the highlight of the song. "Fabulous Garden" an additional track on the single version of "Can't Stop Killing You" would have fit on the original album very well. "King Kong", "Dear John" and "Irish Cousin" were demos that Kirsty worked on wrote/worked on with Mark Nevin. Two live tracks are highlights of the second disc; we get "Miss Otis Regrets" (originally recorded for the album AIDS benefit album RED, HOT & BLUE)and a stunning "Free World" recorded at a concert in 1993 at Solana Beach, California at the Belly Up Tavern. Both appeared again as additional tracks for the single of "Titanic Days". There's also four remixes of the lovely ballad "Angel".

The Album:

Titanic Days was born out of unfortunate events in the lives of British singer-songwriter Kirsty MacColl and her musician pal Mark Nevin (who co-wrote "My Affair," "The One and Only," and "Halloween" on her previous LP, 1991's Electric Landlady). First, both were dropped by their respective labels -- Kirsty was one of many artists cut from Virgin's roster when it was bought out by EMI, and Mark's record deal with BMG ended after the breakup of his band, Fairground Attraction -- and then their respective marriages fell apart.

Indeed, feelings of desolation and desperation run through most of the 7 songs that the pair have written for this record, especially the urgent, jangly opener "You Know It's You," the brooding single "Titanic Days," the story-song "Last Day of Summer," the plaintive ballad "Don't Go Home," and the haunting, half-spoken/half-sung closer "Tomorrow Never Comes." "Big Boy on a Saturday Night" seems out-of-place in this context, but it provides a rare moment of levity, with delightfully nasty put-down lyrics like "You make me laugh, but seriously / I look at you -- what do I see? / A clapped-out Nazi with a blunderbuss." The real high point, though, is the graceful "Soho Square," beginning with images of a freezing, barren winter (as the narrator has been stood up by her self-centered man on her birthday), and slowly building up to an imagined future summertime scene (as the narrator hopes to have her man waiting for *her* someday).

The Curse is that she'll record no more. What an amazingly honest artist. Almost any genre was putty for her hands. What honesty, character and comedy embedded in the best music. Lets hope for justice for Kirsty, and do yourself justice: Listen carefully to Soho Square and weep. Laugh at Bad. The dramatic sensual imagery in Titanic days! You cant get much closer to Kirsty than this album, but her later happy salsa days are a good way to remember her. But who need's her memory? The angel is here now, right?

I was lucky enough to have the late great Kirsty MacColl as a friend. We met in 1994, and she was as sarcastic and fun and witty and beautiful as you might imagine. I didn't know she was a singer when we met, and when I went round to her house for dinner one night, she played the advance copy of "Galore" whilst we enjoyed a great Indian takeout dinner and looked at the pictures for the album. She had a copy of "Titanic Days" and gave it to me....I went back to the States and fell in love! Her first track, "You Know It's You" is one of my all-time favorite Kirsty songs, and "Soho Square" is a masterpiece. There is indeed a bench in Soho Square dedicated to her memory now. I sat there one afternoon last November, while "my feet froze in the winter air," and the church bells rang and the pigeons flew around, and said a prayer of gratitude to whomever and whatever force gave me the gift of this woman in my life.

Forgive the sentimentality. It would have made her cringe! As an interesting side note, when I asked her long ago what her favorite of her albums was, she said it was "Kite." Check that one out as well!
