It's kind of nice to see a lukewarm review of the Waite CD.

While I disagree totally with Andrew's review, he is at least objective enough to offer a true review of a CD by someone that he respects very much, and being that Waite is one of his favorite artists, one would have probably expected a candy coated review, and we got the opposite.

It's all opinion, and in my opinion, I found the new CD to be extremely stripped down musically in comparison to the last couple, and I also think there is an effort on John's part that hasn't been there on the past couple of albums, and all of the effort that has been put in really shines through. The stripped down songs are matched well with a rather stark production - it's not muddy, it doesn't sound cheap, it just takes the less is more approach.

re: the song Fly - originally done a couple of years ago by a band on Columbia called Radford. What John has done with this song is amazing. Not that it matters, as the label behind the record has no power at radio(and how many of them do with an artist like John?), but I thought Fly would be a great single. It's unfortunate that the artists like John, call em classic or whatever, don't get play at radio these days. It is unfortunate, but hey, that's the way it goes in 2001 - money talks....

Good review Andrew...

Matt
