Psychedelic Furs - All Of This And Nothing
It just gets better and better here, doesn't it? Another of the overlooked classics from the 1980's. Please don't think of them as the band-with-that-song-from-that-movie because it's just not correct. Well before and after the movie The Furs were putting out great music that was narrowly defined by critics as part of new-wave. More than New Wave, they were a great band that had real musical skills and a gifted singer in Richard Butler. Blessed with one of the most distinctive and wonderful voices in all of popular music this albumcontains 14 of the choicest cuts of their career. I believe there could have been a wonderful double disc made from their songs but I am just a lowly music-bloging-stay-at-home-dad. So, thrill to the sounds of 'Ghost In You', 'Love My Way' and 'Highwire Days' - which contains one of my fave Psych Furs lyrics "get smart/get scared". Indeed and as before, I have many other Furs albums that will find there way here before too long.
