First Appeared in The Music Box, June 1997, Volume 4, #6
Written by John Metzger
Electric Trains, the best song on this collection of carefully crafted pop tunes, was released long before the album. The tune references Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead and has an extremely infectious melody. Former band member Paul Carrack returns to add backing vocals to the Beatle-esque Walk Away. Yet, despite the fact that Ridiculous is the best album that Squeeze has released in years, somehow long-time collaborators Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook managed to fill the remainder of the disc with mildly entertaining tracks that fall short of making any type of lasting impression.
Ridiculous is available from Barnes & Noble.
