Another hit recording for Simply Red. A CD of reworked songs and new tunes...music from the cuban influenced Perfect Love to the jazzy Sad Old Red shows why M Hucknall is so talented and uniquely cool. Simply Red simply matures with age.

An Album i got and didnt really listen to for over a month... then one day i fancied something different and put it in the car - WOW! this album is stunning... filled with emotion, wonderful vocals and fantastic orchestration - all tracks are brilliant but "Smile" - its everything i'd say to my partner... but in a song.
By Ian (Nottingham, UK)
First of all: the voice of mick hucknall is great as usual and the songs are very goods -most of them classics from the band-. But I think this kind of project can be only justified with a reconstruction fo the material. And here I don't find the arrangements that make a old song into a something completly new. Sad old red is a bit more jazzy than before, holding back the years is a bit more torchy... but a bit is not enough (for me) so I don't think this album rises the geniality of Home. Anyway, nice and easy and far better from many other albums around...

||Stunning vocals, great band|
WOW. Simplified shows the solid talent of Simply Red. Is there any other singer who can match Mick Hucknall? From the Latin rich 'Perfect Love' to the jazz rich 'Sad Old Red', his voice is in top form. The band is excellent, featuring a first-rate horn section and impressive keyboard work by Dave Clayton. The tunes are classics, with three new ones added. For folks in the USA, you've heard most of these songs. You just might not realize it's Simply Red you've been humming along with. Simplified is a great sampler for anyone new to SR. For longtime fans, these arrangements bring added appreciation of the band's ability to play outstanding live music. Shameless plug - if Simply Red play anywhere near you take someone you want to impress. They're one of the best live bands you'll ever see.
