Album Review: We by The Christians

I first discovered The Christians back in 1990 with their single "I Found Out" which got some play on MTV's 120 Minutes. It was a good album that I played quite a bit. The key to their sound is singer Garry Christian's voice. They reminded me a lot of bands like Level 42 in sound where they are combining R&B and pop. They had some limited success in Britain, but never really got much traction here in the US. I figured they were a long gone band, but they have continued to put out albums over the years. We is their 6th studio album.

I found the album to be a bit slow and Garry's voice is not what it once was. Following the Rhapsody rating method I give the album 1 out of 5 stars for Just OK.

Here is their song "Words" off of that 1990 album Colours.
