Adorable - Sistine Chapel Ceiling 12"
Another of those gems you should have in your collection, but I will forgive you if you just have the album Against Perfection instead. The first album was such an amazing release, and it's hard to believe it was initially deleted due to poor sales!! One of the tougher items to find on either vinyl OR on CD, even the eps are hard to find. Luckily, I got my CD when the album first came out, and later forked out some big dough for the LP (just had to have it). In my opinion, 'Sistine Chapel Ceiling' and 'Sunshine Smile' are the strongest singles on the album, although most people seem to prefer the daunting 'Homeboy' for some reason! (I will list Sunshine Smile at a later point) It's not a terrible song, but it's NOWHERE near the caliber of this single. The flip songs are solid tracks as well, but I do wish more bands were like Suede, and could write single worthy material on all their eps. Grab this one, let me know what you think, I'm sure you won't be disappointed with the amazing Adorable.
