Takes me back and brings me forward

I cannot begin to tell you the countless days and nights I lay in front of my speakers as a teen listening to Culture Club. I often wonder if they know how much they meant to so many of us like me, an awkward pimply face closeted gay kid who lived vicariously through their career and hung on each and every silken vocal note. Nobody delivers blue eyed soul like George. There will never be another like him. I have his full catalog in my possession to prove it. “Life” takes me back to those years not because of nostalgia (which I know George would abhor) but because I have yearned for the group’s beautifully crafted melodies, counter melodies, horn licks, Mikey’s funky bass, Roy’s rhythm guitar, thoughtful strings and that voice, oh that voice. No longer silken but more like silk shantung. That same beautiful sheen but with more texture and depth. Look no further than the bridge of Runaway Train as evidence of my praise. Sit back and let it all wash over you and you will be reminded of why this group was and is so amazing. For me, this album is right on time and feels /sounds oh sooooooo good.

At their BEST!

From start to finish this album is simply amazing. Every song is so fresh and so relevant. The production is seamless and smooth. This album is reminiscent of the album Colour by Numbers in that it offers a mix of many different musical genres from funk to soul to calypso to pop. Roy, Jon and Mikey are delivering some of their best work to date. I’m so excited to have this and hope you will love it too!

Boy Oh Boy

Absolutely worth the wait! That voice still sends chills up my spine and gives me tears in my eyes, tears of joy! I think my favorite tracks is Different Man and Life. The band sounds awesome and the music is mesmerizing. This makes my heart sing!
