  • This is currently my favourite album to listen to, and most certainly the most interesting; which of course means its my favourite of all their CD’s. Now the others I’ve listened to, I would give 5 stars, but this is easily 6, and slips into my top 20 alltime albums (and I have alot of albums to choose from).This a fantasic debut album, taking me back to the craziness of the 1st two Roxy Music Albums (yes I know that was a long time ago, but I remember them, and still listen to them)Initially, after having enjoyed Morning View, I thought, ‘no, not as good’, but after the 2nd listening, Redefine and Vitamin caught my ‘ear’ and then after further listening I realised that the initial problem was the sear variety of music styles played, the sear scale of ‘orginal ideas’; however the more I listen the more that variety made the album much more interesting listening for the longer term. In fact the opening track trio are probably my favorite combined opening on any album.Yes, not everything is perfect, and some styles don’t quite gel as well as they might, I wish they had split up Calgone (I always end up laughing though): this is just ‘nit’ picking. Originally I couldn’t understand the point of ‘Medicine Magic’ (which seems to be the case with most people; actually I still don’t see the ‘point’), but now I love it; the drums and bass are fantastic and everything else just fits, enjoy the words, but marvel at the music.From a musician’s point of view, great bass, great syncopated drums, the odd jazzy guitar, then there’s, funk, metal, hip hop melody, etc. These guys obviously have great diverse musical tastes.Summary: Original, Eclectic, Continually interesting, Great Musicianship, Fun, No bad tracks, Superb.
