Mexico 70 - Imperial Comet Hour

This album is teetering at times. Depending on what year you were born, it may be a little "too much" for you. What I mean by that is that it has a definite noticeable particularity about it; a 90s radio rock vibe. So, if you were born in the 80's like myself, this may evoke a guilty nostalgia and unconsciously draw you into this record, but if you fall outside of that particular age group I could see this inducing a bit of nausea perhaps. These songs are the epitome of saccharine pop. Songs you listen to on lazy warm days, when you're feeling good to amplify or complement your mood. Or maybe, you're indulging in a comfortable refuge of solitude, sorting things out or just comfortably wasting time - this is a good album for that too. Mick Bund studied under the prestigious school of Felt, so despite the radio friendly leanings and a few filler tracks, there are some really nice melodies in here.

1. Every Hour
2. I Want You
3. Till You've Spoken
4. Best and Hurst
5. It'll Never Happen Again
6. In Time
7. Hate for You
8. So Do I
9. Road Movie in You
10. Me All Over
11. Days Can't Touch You Now
12. Little Tears
13. Jimmy McGriff
14. Jet Century Horses

Rating - 6/10
