Go-Betweens: Spring Hill Fair (Sire K925179)

Helen Fitzgerald, Melody Maker, 29 September 1984

TO SUMMARISE the Go-Betweens' appeal would be a destructive exercise, because the core of their charm is a moveable feast. From the lush beauty of their last long-player, Before Hollywood, to the arid charms of this record, they have forged a blurred-at-the-edges familiarity that's both warm and desolate, aggressive and friendly.
