Prefab Sprout - Jordan: The Comeback (Click here to listen on Spotify)

Here’s an album that I always thought lived a little to far below the radar here in the US. Released in 1990, it’s DDD (digitally recorded, mixed and mastered), produced by Thomas Dolby, who had previously worked with the band on their second album ‘Steve McQueen’ (released in the US as ‘Two Wheels Good’ after a C&D from McQueen’s estate).

As an exercise in how good something can sound this album is in the upper strata. Tight, crisp, lush, full are just a few of the terms that fit. Plus, if you’re a fan of flowery, sometimes sappy lyrics you’ll love this record. “We Let the Stars Go” can easily raise goose bumps. A true Pop gem.
