Marc Almond: Tenement Symphony (WEA/All formats)

Betty Page, New Musical Express, 19 October 1991

A PLUCKY '80s survivor, Marc Almond is now on his tenth life. Having had dealings with almost every major label in the land, he's now been scooped up from the arms of an ungrateful EMI into the bosom of Warner Bros to become their chairman's pet project. You remember Rob Dickins — he's the one that steered Enya to Number One with 'Orinoco Flow' (and got mentioned in the lyrics) and it's now his personal quest to do the same for the High Priest of Tack and Toreros.
