Label: SPV Recordings
Brilliant Pop - Latin Quarter present a minor masterpiece
"Where does one begin to praise this CD? The bitter-sweet lyrics, the brilliant intertwining of piano and guitar, the perfect vocal harmonies, the atmospheric texture, the magic of the melodies? "Bringing Rosa Home" (SPV) is the sixth and strongest CD so far from the English band Latin Quarter. The richness of ideas of joint band- leaders Steve Skaith and Richard Wright is overwhelming, their musical taste undeniable. The twelve pop-songs on their new CD sound smooth and effortless almost as a matter of course. Like all really first-class things." Brigitte Magazine, 6/97, German
"... a CD that impresses in its entirety ... there is not one song that feels like a filler... I have rarely listened to such a complete full-length record." Stereo, Sweden
... a record made of pearls... one of the best bands of their genre is back!" Plärrer, Germany
"... twelve exquisite titles... no overflowing, obligatory British phlegm, everything is skilfully measured out ... polished, gilded. The work of a goldsmith, reserved for sensitive souls, for chaste ears, for musical paradise-seekers." Freeway, France
