3 stars Very Poppy.

The Move's first album is very much in the early-mid Beatles mode. Very poppy, meant for radio, but with some clever lyrics and enough charm that one will be tempted to put in on more than once. Roy Wood is the main songwriter for the Move, and his songs are generally the best of theirs, all the way through until they split. The best track on this first album is "Cherry Blossom Clinic", a great song that is among the best in their discography, although the heavier "revisited" version on Shazam is the much better version. But that song serves mostly to reinforce the feeling that the rest of the songs here, while often catchy and clever enough, are not at the same level. Indeed, this their weakest album, even apart from the fact it is the least progressive or musically diverse. I give this 6.4 out of 10 on my 10-point scale, which translates to mid 3 PA stars.

Walkscore | 3/5 |
