Captain Sensible ‎– Revolution Now



Resuming his solo career in the late '80s, Sensible reached some sort of artistic peak on the excellent Revolution Now (1989), an all-new album of originals (some co-written by Cleaner From Venus/Brotherhood of Lizards' Martin Newell) recorded with such comrades as Rat Scabies, Henry Badowski and Paul Gray. Although hampered a bit by Sensible's minimalist singing and the obvious use of synthesizers where real instruments would have sounded better, the record is still full of catchy melodies and nearly serious left-field lyrics. (Not to mention spoken- word TV bites that help express Sensible's chagrin at modern consumerism.) There isn't a bad song here, and the best ones — "Missing The Boat," "The Toys Take Over," "Revolution Now," "Phone-In" — cover amazing stylistic ground with ease and flair. sourced: http://www.trouserpress.com/entry.php?a=captain_sensible
