Beautiful You

Released 23 September 2002

CD (SUML 12(CD))

Beautiful You retains the characteristic qualities of Friends music catchy melodies, great trumpet riffs and intricate guitar patterns, with a very English sound - whilst developing the band's style in several new directions. While a couple of the songs maintain the stripped-down feel of Folk Songs, the new album is a return to the rich, full band sound which characterised Friends' work up to the release of Sundrowned.

From the summery optimism of This Is The Start and When The Sun Shines, to the haunting nostalgia of Village In My Mind and It Passed Me By, to the Latin-tinged pop of So You Say, the thirteen tracks of Beautiful You offer the complete Friends experience, and more.
