    Clive Gregson's solo work and collaborations with Christine Collister were marked by craftsmanlike quality, always subtle and tasteful. Despite the remarkable consistency of his output, there was always an unspoken desire for him to return to the pop days of Any Trouble among elements of his fan base. With I Love This Town, Gregson makes this return, pulling out a batch of upbeat, musically irresistible tunes. Certainly the album is more AAA-oriented than the new wave/pub rock of the Any Trouble days, but the change of pace is a welcomed one. ~ Chris Woodstra

  • Critic Reviews
    Q (10/96, p.164) - 3 Stars - Good - "...Punchy, at times mildly euphoric songs...with a polished but funky combo sound....An assured and decidedly upbeat album from one of Britain's finest singer-songwriters."
    Musician (1/97, p.89) - "...songs as melodious and witty as Elvis Costello's (without the excess bile and literary pretensions), he plays guitar with all the power and virtuousity of Richard Thompson....If you like your music warm, friendly and smart, this TOWN's for you."
