Squeeze's moment in the pop music sun lasted a few brief years in the late 70s and early 1980s, the era of Power Pop when albums like East Side Story brought fans into contact with one of the most appealing combinations of fresh melodies, driving beats and clever, vivid lyric writing that there is. Comparisons were made by some critics to Lennon/McCartney. Then all the attention went away, and the group continued to do the same thing--in fact to get better and better at it, to less and less acclaim. Somehow, critics would rather turn your attention toward vomitous, trendy archfiends like Marilyn Manson than perform a quality assurance function, which would place this band near the top every year. Excellence is apparently boring--but not to you, hopefully.
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.

Domino is a fine album that will never be as popular as it deserves to be. The Title song is incredibly catchy and addicting. Glen Tilbook's vocals across the album are spirited. It is an upbeat album that will please old-time and new squeeze listeners alike.

It is really a shame that Squeeze has been largely forgotten since their Top 10 days a couple of decades ago. This is a fantastic pop record, and I agree by and large with the initial reviewer...although as far as being an example for kids, its hard to agree with that considering the themes of drunkeness and infidelity - which however, are part of the unique Squeeze 'persona' and do make for compelling emotions and storytelling, emoted by Glenn Tillbrook in his inimitable way. Two of the songs, 'Without You Here' and 'Short Break', are only OK, 'Play On' is just good, but the rest range from excellent to great, my favorite being 'Donkey Talk', which is a beautiful and wistful picture of the change in a relationship where the old magic is disappearing - and there is 'nothing left to talk about' - extremely moving! Lots of Steely Dan fans who were looking for more melodically from their comeback release might find what they were looking for both here and in the other 90's Squeeze releases.

While never attaining the commercial status they deserved, Squeeze can still put together a great album. Most bands can trace their creative high point to their early days, however, "Domino" proves that older, well-established groups can still be creative. "Domino" is perhaps their strongest album of the decade. "Some Fantastic Place" could be a contender. However, I found the band's most recent rhythm section to be their strongest in many years. The drumming was excellent. The percussion and bass lines melded well. Chris Holland added nice keyboards. In terms of songs, I most enjoyed the following songs: "Play On" "What's Wrong With This Picture?" "Donkey Talk" "Sleeping With A Friend" and "Short Break." Personally, I found Chris Difford's vocals on "Short Break" menacing, while the band's instrumentation helped to create the eerie atmosphere of the song. If you enjoy strong pop music...this is it.

Like a middle aged ball player, Squeeze albums contain a little more fat around the edges and don't come up with as quite as many hits as they used to, but all in all, this was a pretty fine listen. You have to give these old jackrabbits their due, soldiering on for 3 decades, thru bitter breakups and personal set backs, punk rock, new romantic movement, grundge, hip hop... They are still pumping out solid, if not classic, collections of 3 minute pop songs. D & T would have to rank as one of the top recordning duos of the past quarter century, right behind Elton & Taupin, no?
.
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.
