Simple Minds - Our Secrets Are the Same (2003) Retail CD
Our Secrets Are the Same has come to be regarded--at least by those Simple Minds fans loyal enough to maintain an interest--as Jim Kerr and Charlie Burchill's legendary "lost" studio album, a record injudiciously denied the fair hearing of a general release and condemned to languish in penal pop obscurity, an innocent victim of music industry politics. Recorded before the release of 1998's Neapolis (arguably not a career highlight), duly completed but not mixed and then pencilled-in for official release in the first few months of 2000, the album was eventually shelved indefinitely when Simplemore… Minds' professional relationship with their record company (ironically, the label that has now seen fit to release it) disintegrated to the point of divorce. Legal shenanigans and matters of rock fashion aside, it is fair to say that Our Secrets Are the Same thoroughly deserves its overdue freedom. While Simple Minds persist in advertising their Achilles heel by wrapping-up their material in the corporate power dressing of 1980s stadium-rock production, it isn't unreasonable to estimate that songs with the overt pop sensibility of "Jeweller to the Stars" (a muscular rocker with a dance groove, foxy bass lines, shimmering bottleneck guitar and a chorus that playlist sifters would adore) could have stormed the charts in more sympathetic times. And what of the even better "Death by Chocolate", with its cheeky theme and crafty folk-guitar parts? Imagine the fun a contemporary knob-twiddling guru like Mirwais could have with that. At times like these you really wonder if Simple Minds are merely a style tweak and a hip production hair-breadth's away from renewed chart action and critical applause. --Kevin Maidment
