Amoeba Review

Brad 10/15/2012

Cloudcuckooland was released in February of 1990. I loved this album. Obviously I loved every album on this list, but I really did get obsessed with these guys. But for some reason my love of The Lightning Seeds was only for this one album. The band went to to put out 5 more albums after this one. But I never listened to any of them but this one. I think I probably heard "Pure" on KROQ for the first time and was hooked. The band was from Liverpool. Ian Broudie was the singer. I seriously wore this album out. I couldn't get enough. They were not shoegaze. They were not dreampop. Britpop didn't really exist yet. But they existed somewhere in between all that. They probably had more in common with the new wave bands of the '80s. They were most certainly a pop band. And I can't think of this band existing anywhere other than the early '90s. Think of them as the perfect mix of OMD with Belle & Sebastian. New Wave meets Twee!

 

This album featured in Brad’s Best Albums of 1990 blog.
