Jonquil - 'Point Of Go'
Fine pop music
Though ‘It’s My Part’ and ‘Mexico’ come steeped in that inexplicably Oxford-evoking guitar work, Manuel’s trans-Atlantic pop influences dominate, most notably on the sunset ambience of ‘Point Of Go (Part 2)’ and ‘History Of Headaches’’ amorphous backdrop.
It makes for fine pop music, yet you sense, somewhow, that there might be a reason why half the group left to go off and form Trophy Wife instead.
