3 stars All over the place. When its good it sounds a lot closer to Waterloo lilly than to H&TN. When it is less than perfect it grates a little, but only if you are in a compering mood. Otherwise its a good set with a markedly differant sound. Its a great shame that this line up didn't stay together and make a studio albumb. Personaly I have never been that big a fan of Dave Stewert and Sophia Domancich is a far more lyrical player , less hung up on being clever for its own sake. Richard Sinclair's vocals are not as well recorded as I would have liked but as always his voice is easy on the ear, and his bass playing is supurb. Pip is solid as always."Cauliflower ears" is a decent track and I must seek out other work by Domancich. "Shipwrecked" by Pip is less inspiring and sounds like a warm up. This line up is rather less flashy sounding than the original band but this is mostly a good thing. The general concensus gives this 3 stars which is about right, becuse frankly its not that good.Phil Miller is on this recording but is off form and its shows up horrible the lack of practice. far from essdential but worth a spin now and then.
