Sing-Songs review by Stuart Coupe Print E-mail
Saturday, 01 January 1983
From an unknown magazine, this must have been printed in late '82, early '83 between Blurred Crusade and Seance

Sing-Songs, The Church (EMI)

Here we have five new songs recorded by The Church before they departed for their first European tour. There's four from Steve Kilbey and a cover of the Simon and Garfunkel classic "I Am A Rock". Nothing on sings-Songs breaks any new ground for The Church but who cares? They're masters of the perfectly crafed, melodic, lyrically obscure, psychedelic pop rock'n'roll format that flourish in the mid-60s. My favourite on this EP is the moody, atmospheric "the Night Is Very Soft". The cover of "I Am A Rock" is a pleasant, uptempo rendition but lacks the emotion of the original. Sing-songs is an enjoyable "hello" from The Church until they release their third album. Can't wait myself.
