Review of "The Church" (Of Skins and Heart, really) Print E-mail
Saturday, 27 March 1982
The album "The Church" is the first US version of "Of Skins and Heart", with three songs replaced with tracks from the double-single EP. See the discography for more. Published in magazine "RM"

The Church: The Church (Carrere Cal 130)

Days of the past today revisited. When the New Psychedelia reared its pretty head last year, the Church were still working on their version of it. Two Aussies and two Poms, all convinced the world needed a new version of sixties hedonism.

In truth, this debut album does possess the necessary spirit with a faithful production job being performed by Chris Gilbey and Bob Clearmountain. The mood is soft rock, with jangly guitars, strumming chords and Byrdsy harmonies. Pick of the crop must be 'Is This Where You Live' which starts off in the mystical and ends up in the hysterical. The rest is much the same with perhaps the free 'n' easy 'Bel-Air' being the best.

The Church may well be smuggled into the Paisley clan by the back door if they are not careful. The direction they are taking is a dangerous one if they're trying to avoid ridicule.
