THE CHURCH
  SOMETIME ANYWHERE
    ARISTA (07822-18729-2)
      By Stephen Thompson

Wading through the Church's new "Sometime Anywhere" is, to put it
mildly, a daunting task.  The album's 13 songs occupy a sprawling
77-minute package, and that's not taking into consideration the
30-minute bonus disc.

Yes, it's a massively lengthy collection - and Steven Kilbey still
sings like a low-key Bono - but "Sometime Anywhere" is a warm,
compelling record.  The Church hasn't scored a big hit since 1988's
stunning single "Under The Milky Way," but the album meanders amiably,
as if the band didn't have anything to prove.  And considering the
Church's immense and often excellent body of work, maybe it doesn't.

"Sometime Anywhere"'s lush, eight-minute single "Two Places At Once"
(viva radio edits!) is simultaneously pretty and radio-unfriendly,
insuring the album's place as a "for fans only" release.  And that's
too bad.  The record strikes a likable balance between lazy pacing and
ambitious arrangements, and it's a terrific mood-setter.  (If you're
looking for dancier Church material, the bonus disc features several
catchy, hook-intensive cuts, and none of the seven tracks exceeds five
minutes.)

Many music reviewers detest long records:  After all, who wants to
endure an 80-minute epic when you get the same pay for listening to a
concise 20- minute EP?  But as long as the quality is consistent, and
it is here, there's nothing wrong with giving fans enormous quantities
of music for their money.  "Sometime Anywhere" is a languid, sleepy
record, but there's plenty of it to go around.
