From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars What a discovery today, The Sparks on Prog Archives, I stumbled upon it while checking new entries on this website, but I am far from shocked, and I don't feel the need to be cynical. Because I consider The Sparks as an unique band with progressive tendencies (Art-rock seems to fit the most), and I know a lot of friends who are still very much into The Sparks, and witnessed one of their recents gigs.

This Town Ain't Big Enough is an exciting song that delivers the trademark Russell Meal powerful high-pitched vocals. But I also love the dynamics, the fiery rock guitar and the delicate keyboard work. After watching it on the legendary Dutch Toppop I rushed to the nearest record store and bought it, and I still like to wacth it on YouTube. It's a real gem, in an era that Art-rock blossemed, from Queen with Killer Queen to 10CC with Silly Love.
