Captain Sensible - The Collection

After his departure from The Damned, Raymond Burns acquired an appreciation for popular song, and fused his own wits, whims, and political ideologies into the alchemy pot, for a rather dynamic result. Between that silly beret of his and all those captain puns ("This is your captain speaking!" etc.), its obvious that "The Captain" is quite the (lovable) character. Despite all of his daft behaviors, the man can write a damn ideal ballad, and there are plenty of them in this this compilation. Stand-out tracks include the classic "Wot!" "Martha the Mouth," and "Glad it's all Over", but just about every song is a gem. Note: There's 2 songs missing from my copy of this album...apologies in advance.

Rating: 9/10
