The brothers Ron and Russell Mael, famously known as SPARKS are
around since 1966, yes, that’s 57 years and no sign of calling it a day.
On the contrary.
Today they make all their fans – old, middle-aged
and young – yes 3 generations, very happy with their
25th LP. It’s titled THE GIRL IS CRYING IN HER LATTE
The Mael bros about the new LP: “As bold and uncompromising
as anything we did back then, or for that matter, anytime throughout
Mojo Magazine (UK): “Ron Mael’s lyrics are elegiac, witty and forensically
detailed; Russel Mael delivers them exquisitely and they specialise in ear
worms.” Score: 8/10.
TUTV: Since their massive 1974 breakthrough hit This Town Ain’t Big Enough
For The Both Of Us the Mael brothers took the world in order to have a place for
them both. Almost 50 years later they still know accurately how to write/make top pop tunes. And even after 50 years, they do it with a fresh, desiring, and masterful approach. Their music is elevating, enrapturing, and entrancing. I know it’s only pop, but I like it,
I like it, I like it. A lot of inspiration at play here for young artists.
