Review – Close

This is a rather strange kettle of fish. First of all, there’s “Stone”, a happy sounding thing with a bizarre popping effect going through it which doesn’t seem at all suitable as it’s all about being environmentally aware and how we’re messing up the world. Then there are “Lucky Guy” and “Four Letter Word”, which, to be frank, whine along very horribly indeed. And once you’ve knocked these out of the way what you’re left with is a string of jolly good pop tunes. There’s the brilliant single “Hey Mister Heartache”, the rather steamy “Love In A Natural Way” and “You’ll Be The One Who’ll Lose”, which are perkier by far and much more the “ticket”!
