MUSIC REVIEWS

Squeeze-Ridiculous (I.R.S.)

 

While Squeeze has put together a lot of great songs over the years, many of their later albums were overshadowed by the band's superlative early albums like Cool for Cats and Argybargy.

 

This may be the band's best overall album since 1981's East Side Story. Also, their style of ironic Beatle-derived pop is making a comeback with bands like Oasis. So, it's just Squeeze's bad luck that soon after this album was released, IRS Records shut down operations.

 

Because of this, the album will not get much of a push and will probably soon be hard to find. It's worth seeking out, though, because tunes like the pop confection "Grouch of the Day" and the shimmering ballad "Heaven Knows" are amongst the band's best work. (8/96)
