The self-titled Baby Scream album is being re-released as a a special extended edition. Basically on one-man project by Argentinian guitar player Juan Pablo Mazzola the songs are carefully arranged powerpop songs. By adding three mixes by producer Muddy Stardust (Chris Robinson Brotherhood) and an early of stand-out track Jekyll & Hyde the listener is provided with an insider's view of the choices that were made for the final product. Truth be told: the Stardust mixes are inferior - the slightly claustrophobic feel doesn't sit well with the more open-minded approach on the original album.
Still, it's nice to have this album back in print. Recommended if you like early Pink Floyd, Marc Bolan and Jarvis Cocker.
