Sometime Anywhere review by Katherine Yeske from Boston Rock, July 1994

The Church
Sometime Anywhere

Sometime Anywhere is the album the Church shold've made after 1988's Starfish (home of "Under the Milky Way", the gorgeous hit single). Post-Starfish albums found the band roaming around its old stomping ground - and were those floorboards ever getting worn bare. But Sometime Anywhere features a trmmed-down Church (it's now just singer/bassist Steve Kilbey and guitarist Marty Willson-Piper sharing instrumental responsibilities). They've picked up the pieces from the past, but they don't put together the same old puzzle this time.

More dark (but never dreary) than anything the Church has attempted, Sometime Anywhere  songs have titles liked "Day of the Dead," "My Little Problem," and "Dead Man's Dream." And, for the first time in years, Kilbey's lyrics have depth and mystery - his recent pretentiousness is gone (thank God).

Sometime Anywhere embraces an impressive range of emotions, while still keeping the CHurch's distinctive sound. Half the cuts are quite aggressive ("Lost My Touch" sounds like an updated "Travel By Thought", a track off 1983's Seance) Other songs are soft, mellow and achingly beautiful ("Loveblind", "Lullaby"). "Business Woman" is, admittedly, a little silly. But this is forgivable, because it's compensated for with songs like the MIddle Eastern-ish instrumental "Eastern" and the loopy abandon of "Angelica". If you gave up on the Church after Starfish, give this a shot. Trust me.
