Steeleye Span - Bedlam Born
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 22/02/2008 11:13:13
Since the release of 'Time', this has to be Steeleye Span's finest moment. Bringing back the rock element that was so much a part of the band's Rocket Cottage period in my opinion proves the crucial factor in casting this milestone album. Opening with the track 'Well Done Liar' (a re-working of Martin Said To His Man) guitarist Bob Johnson has his trademark riffs stamped indelibly through it. Meanwhile, from out of the shadows take a bow Tim Harries who in addition to his bass playing now adds electric guitar and Gothic songwriting talents to the track 'John Of Ditchford'. I must admit to assuming that the guitar parts were written by Bob but on closer inspection of the sleevenotes discovered otherwise. A mistake that many longstanding fans will make I'm sure! The simple but effective use of doubling the rhythm provided by Dave Mattacks on 'We Poor Labouring Men' provides just the right foil for Pete Knight's dramatic chopping fiddle while Gay Woods weighs in with a duetting soprano on the traditional 'Connemara Cradle Song'. Less sham and more rock! What more can you ask?
