Zombie Colin lacks zeal


FORMER frontman of The Zombies, Colin Blunstone's latest LP, The Ghost Of You And Me, has been a whopping 13 years in the making.
To put that into perspective, that's as long as it took Guns 'N' Roses to put out Chinese Democracy.
For fans it must have seemed it would never arrive - even as the finishing touches were being put to the album last December, the mixing desk exploded, putting the release date back to March.
Sadly nothing that exciting seems to have been captured on the record itself - instead, over time his music has turned to slush.
Outdated ballads with a 1980s soft rock sheen prevail, making the LP sound like a collection of Sting b-sides.
Limp and needlessly nostalgic, The Ghost Of You And Me is unlikely to resurrect this Zombie.
