Adrian Borland - Brittle Heaven 3 star review (Dave Morrison may 1992)

date: May 1, 1992


 

Adrian Borland and The Citizens - "Brittle Heaven"

As the leader of the brilliant The Sound in the early '80s, Borland could have been as big as U2 if he'd been prettier. His reflective writing remains as good as ever, though the glossy sheen of the up-tempo sax-fuelled numbers points them in the direction of Springsteenesque stompers. The reflective moments are more satisfying, especially the melancholic closer 'Tidal Wave Goodbye'.
