Now Squeeze doesn't even have a proper US record label, and this album is on a teeny weeny label, and so it may not get the distribution it needs, nor airplay. Still, don't pass it by. It is as good as their last one, "Ridiculous," and better than the one before "Some Fantastic Place," and yet it is different. They've hired a new rhythm section, and this seems to have recharged their musical interests, so the album has a fresher, sharper edge musically. Guitar playing seems a little more intriguing, the beats a little more unpredictable. It's a fun record, and very danceable, and the melodies and choruses are quite sticky. Best songs are "Bonkers" and the the title track, but it's consistently good throughout, even profound in spots.
We should be grateful that such a high-quality act continues to soldier on without much encouragement -- Squeeze is an excellent role model for your kids.
The home runs (Tempted & Black COffee) of yore are replaced here with pleasant sound streams; the tunes are not as edgy (musically or lyrically) as they might have been in 1979, and one can't help noticing a certain purposeful saddness that encircles many of the written lines. Tracks of single fathers awaiting their children from single mothers, songs of older men fantasizing about 18 year old secondary school girls, and those young ladies being amuzed then bored with well-to-do men well past thier masculine prime.
There wasn't a duff track in the bunch, and if nothing stood out like their more recent "Electric Toy Trains" here, these songs are very pleasant and nostalgic. They are warm and familiar voides. I'll alwasy welcome a new Squuze LP.
I recall their was an MTV show on about 2004 that featured "Where are they Now" bands of the 1980s (Flock of Seagulls and so on). The season ending climax show was trying to reunite, a stubborn band who refused to get back together at that time. And never did onthe show: Squeeze.
Squeeze should probably be considered for induction into any Rock Hall of Fame, but that is another argument for another day.
