Apart from the dark and majestic Seamonsters, George Best is easily the best possible introduction to the Wedding Present's work; it's also a fine introduction to the entire C-86 scene that had such an impact on British rock. It would be nearly impossible to name the standout tracks, since the band's strength lies in the fact that every tune is so solid: it should suffice to mention "Everyone Thinks He Looks Daft," "My Favourite Dress," "Anyone Can Make a Mistake," and "Shatner" — then remember that nearly every songon the album is just as good as those that have been picked out as singles. Though it's early days in their long career, David Gedge's cherrfully bitter worldview and brilliantly glum wordplay was fully formed by this point, as was the band's musically punishing attack that was built on hummingbird fast guitars and thumping drums. With the band never taking a breath or slowing down, the album can be a bit overwhelming at times, but it's also just as easy to swept away and transported by the sound and fury. A brilliant debut. ~ Nitsuh Abebe & Tim Sendra, Rovi
