TVD's Morning Wax

The rerelease of the Sprout's Thomas Dolby-produced "Steve McQueen" has had me rethinking the LP recorded after "McQueen" but released after their biggest commercial success "From Langley Park to Memphis." For me, this is where it all gels...not over-produced, less saccharine, and actually consistent from track to track. As much as I do adore "McQueen", it falls apart on side two for me...not here however.

I'm still a SWOON boy but these are lovely - it's a very good album.

Always wondered how this one got passed over... It was simply brilliant. And, has aged well, very well.
