The MG's return! A mixed set.,
By A Customer
This review is from: That's the Way It Should Be (Audio CD)
Released in 1994, "That's the Way It Should Be" marked the MG's first record together since 1977's very disappointing (and somewhat disco-ish) "Universal Language." "That's the Way" marked the MG's return to the formula that made albums like "Soul Limbo" and "Hip Hug-Her" so great. Unfortunately, the songs here (both covers and originals) don't quite measure up to the standard of the songs on those great early-period albums (although "Sarasota Sunset" comes very close). Another problem is the sonic studio sheen that drains the energy from the songs. I saw the MG's playing these tunes live in 1994 and they sounded much more forceful--a live set of these tunes would have been much better.
