Fluffhouse review of Heyday Print E-mail
Friday, 03 October 2003
Fluffhouse review of Heyday The earliest album I have by the Church, after I had become a fan through the more experimental stuff they did in the 90's. The cover of "Heyday" (in particular the hair) should clearly give away the era when this album was made. Their usual jangly guitar sound is polished up with a firmly mid-80's production style. It does compare well to better-known music with a similar sound - I'm thinking of New Order, but without the dance leanings, or the Cure, but without the goth theatrics. Some musical touches do scream "cheese!", such as the Phil Collins-style horn sound on "As You Will" and the string embellishments of "Night of Light". "Youth Worshipper" also uses some horn tootling in its camp but funky foot-stamping chorus. But despite the album's obvious age, there are some surprisingly good tunes, and hints of a songwriting flair that would get better and better with each subsequent release.
