  1. While I can understand anybody not wanting to acknowledge the existence of Let’s Change The World With Music, if Paddy McAloon’s playing everything on this album and it still counts as Prefab Sprout, then surely so does that one, so 12 years is a bit off.

  2. Brian – you’re welcome!

    Alex – can see what you’re saying, it’s what the press releases seem to be saying, so I went with that.

    A similar case might be made about albums under the Waterboys or Mike Scott name…

  3. Sounds good. Let’s hope the rest is as good; Prefab Sprout were a classy act and I too look forward to this one. Give us a heads up when it’s released 🙂
