It's amazing! Been listening to that one since i was fourteen, it's their pinnacle though, nothing else they done comes close. Maybe Jordan The Come Back but it's still miles off.
"From Langley Park to Memphis" is a true gem. Some songs are on par with the Beatles. I'll stand by that comment even at the gates of hell.
Steve McQueen > Jordan: The Comeback > Protest Songs > From Langley Park To Memphis > Crimson/Red > Swoon > Let's Change The World With Music > Andromeda Heights
I haven't heard The Gunman & Other Stories
the acoustic versions on the re-release of Steve McQueen are really something
Although 'From Langley Park to Memphis' has even higher highs.
Haven't heard their other albums but I know a lot of their songs through the 'The Collection' compilation which is worth checking out.
Life's a Miracle is their best song imo
nah that's just drunk talk...
probably 'The World Loves Lovers'
Only discovered them fully 3 years ago and they're one of my all time favourite bands.
Jordan: The Comeback is a sensational record. The lyrics are wondrously heartfelt (like all of McAloon's words), the themes, song arcs, structure and melodies are all spot on - a truly unique masterpiece.
All their records are worth checking out, tho. There's a two disc greatest hits out their with some B-sides chucked in for good measure.
