Scotland's best kept secret is back, and better than ever! I can not stop listening to this CD, as each song quickly moves to the top of my iTunes list of most frequently played tracks. As wonderful as "Cake," "I've Seen Everything," and "A Happy Pocket" are, this is not like any of those three albums. "Weightlifting" is so much more mature, more soulful, more deep, more mellow, and more beautiful than anything they've ever done before. Why these guys aren't bigger is beyond me.
This CD isn't just for the 30/40 something age group which has been following the TCS since 1990. After listening to the album in my classroom, one of my high-school students has, in her own words, "fallen in love with the Trashcan Sinatras!"
My personal favorites: "All the Dark Horses," "Weightlifting," "Got Carried Away," and "It's a Miracle." That said, I never use the skip button when this CD is in the player - every track is worth a listen.
A recommendation: If you love this CD, try "Keep Going" from Stephen Duffy and the Lilac Time.
