5.0 out of 5 stars An exceptional band's finest album, February 8, 2003
This review is from: Home & Abroad: Live (Audio CD)
If you have any interest in The Style Council buy this CD. The band is almost impossible to categorize. Read the online reviews and notice how everyone's definition of their music is different. "White Soul" is one description that sticks with me and is supported by this CD. Unlike many bands, they sound even better live, probably because they are great musicians. They are loose but groove really well on this recording. It's a great mix of some of their finest songs at the peak of their history. This is the album that introduced me to The Style Council and it remains my favorite. The horns are strong, the strings are real and the band is tight. Camille Hinds is a fantastic bass player and Steve White is the most underrated drummer I know of. Listen to his little fills that show his jazz foundation. I also own the video tape version of this concert and it's the most enjoyable concert video I've seen. This is what pop music can achieve but rarely does - polish, soul, melody, instrumentation and class.
