Releases information

Island, ZE ILPS 7019

re-released on CD at 1994 by Rhino
Includes a new version of Close Watch, from the Helen Of Troy album.
*In The Library of Force is included on the expanded cd re-issue.

The original lp contained Mama's Song, an 0:58 instrumental, as the sixth track of side one. This is not missing from the cd re-issue, but included in Close Watch which now runs for 3:09 (2:11 on the lp).
The original Mama's Song however, featured a telephone call between John Cale and his mother. She had sung 'Arlan y Mor' (On The Sea Shore). When she was taken ill, Cale decided not to include it on the album.

Thanks to snobb for the addition

Review by Bonnek
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Metal Team
2 stars MFANS is another critically acclaimed album from John Cale that yet has to start speaking to me. It combines the mellowness of 1919 with an ill-fitting artsy pretension. Not the most exiting of combinations thinkable.

It starts with recycling Close Watch, a new recording of the best tune from Helen Of Troy and one of the highlights here. Broken Bird maintains the same reflective ambience. The sought-after punk with art pretension of Changes Made is rather awkward though. It had better been left off the album to make more room for pensive musings such as Chinese Envoy. Not a really strong piece neither but at least it provides some sort of thematic cohesion that could have make this album a bit better then the sum of its parts.

Damn Life is a simple rock ballad that is arranged into a pretentious affectation, with the Beethoven's 9th inclusion as the most preposterous climax. Also If You Were Still Around and other tracks that follow merely sound like art-posturing to me. Only Taking Your Life has the mark of quality of the opening tracks. Overall, this is an average singer-songwriter album for me but certainly not among the best in that field.

I have to conclude that the most popular albums from John Cale suit me the worst. Both this one and Paris 1919 have only kept to disappoint me in the many years they've been gathering dust on the attic. But then, I'm a kind of prog/new-wave/metal/zeuhl hybrid sort of person, so I've obviously not understood any of this at all.

5 stars The inclusion of John Cale on this site is a brave decision, if not a truly progressive one. His general work doesn't sit comfortably next to any conventional, classic Prog Rock, yet his uncompromising compositions, his avantgarde approach to Rock'n'Roll and Pop holds more of its own to most o ...
