Not being familiar with veteran London act Squeeze, I didn't know what to expect here. But this live recording from vocalist and guitarist Tilbrook and band immediately convinced me. The opener, "Annie Get Your Gun", evidences Tilbrook's considerable guitar skills and soulful stage presence.
Filmed in front of a small and appreciative audience, and shot professionally with multiple cameras, "Live In New York City" amply exhibits Tilbrook and company's power-pop mastery. There are 16 tracks here, 9 of which are classic Squeeze songs. Tilbrook's enigmatic and likable stage presence makes every song here a celebratory and pleasingly loud (and highly melodic) experience.
For any fan of Squeeze, or even anyone into world-class power pop with hooks and charisma, this one is a winner. (MVD Visual)
