  • Tricky

    I like their first one. Beggar is probably their best album and I have also picked Rewired, it’s a very different and for me enjoyable album!

    ... make tomorrow today!

  • My favorite album is "Beggar"

    I also like "Rewired" - there are a couple of interesting tunes on that one, like "Falling" or "How Can I"

    Then "Let Me Fly", cause I think they really had a lot of good quality tunes on this one.

    So, 25 year since BEGGAR ON A BEACH OF GOLD was released (6th March)

    Our review from back then:

  • Beggar is my favorite

    my other two may seem odd choices, but ...

    Rewired: It was different, but it was so bloody good

    Let me fly: I like the overall feeling of that one!

    some are wise ... and some otherwise

  • The first one is easily my favorite by a pretty wide margin.

    I went for the first three, but Word of Mouth and Beggar on a Beach of Gold could switch places depending on mood. That said, I haven't listened to Beggar start to finish in a long while, maybe I should...

  • Sorry guys and gals. Not a huge fan of Mike solo works. Beggars was an album recommended to me by fans of his. I have most of his stuff and played 6 of his albums and got bored.

    I do respect a lot Mike's musical talent, but his solo band is not my cup of tea, Im afraid!... :(

  • I think Beggar is a great album, 1995 was a special year personally for me so each track brings back lots of memories. So much better than Word of Mouth, that is such a weak album. I hope the band get to do a delayed 25-year anniversary tour for Beggar at some point.

    They've gone and changed the rules again,,,"

  • I gave The Road a fresh listen the other day. Apparently there are some great track on that record, i.e. I Don't Do Love and Heaven Doesn't Care

    some are wise ... and some otherwise

    In a way, it's Rewired that impresses me the most. I like the two instrumentals on that record.
