The Front Lawn - More Songs From The Front Lawn (New Zealand 1993)

Uncle Roddus Album Of The Day

The second and final Front Lawn album continues this weeks Don McGlashan marathon and we have more of the same quirky kiwiana pop music as on the last set but this one is even better. Some excellent pop melodies especially on the vocals with some beautiful ballad like songs as well as some more songs on our materialism such as the brilliant "Beautiful Things", which was another higher profile song here and the wonderful "Wedding Song" with its washing machine beat and lyrics about marriage to a washing machine and the line "What money has joined, let no man put asunder". Brilliant!
Another NZ classic and like nothing else around, this album is a masterpiece and gets 5+/5.
