The Bluetones | CD review | 2003

THE BLUETONES - Luxembourg

Review by Dawn

The Bluetones are back with a fresh sound and their fourth studio album is better than ever. As the LP bursts into life with the intriguing electronica of Here It Comes Again, mainman Mark Morriss grabs you by the hand and drags you up to dance to his band's new, rockier mix of addictive, scratchy guitars and luscious vocal harmonies, his grip never once loosening until long after the final chords of terrific tenth track Turn It Up have finished. The tunes are irresistibly infectious and the 'rumours/satsumas' line in You're No Fun Anymore (the song which also spawned the album's title) must surely rate as one of the greatest pop rhymes ever. Luxembourg? Only a fool would beg for it to end...
