about

Producido por Kent Steedman, el álbum abre con una sorprendente lectura del maestro Alain Toussaint, On Your Way Down, que sufre una transformación absoluta sin perder la calidad por el camino y se aprovecha del órgano invitado de Bruce Tatham. A partir de ese momento la composición pasa a manos de John A. Spittles, cerebro estético de la banda más conocido por su alias, Johnny Casino, y aquí guitarrista único de la banda australiana si exceptuamos las aportaciones de Steedman y su "snake guitar". El high energy manda en muchos de los temas (Am I The Problem, September Crush, Easy The Hard Way, Gimme A Little Something…), pero eso no quita el sitio a medios tiempos de fuerte intensidad emocional (Still Waiting, Let It Slide, I Won't Be Behind You) ni pone pegas a que el pop se cuele en la fiesta entre los guitarrazos de Casino (The Song Didn't Get The Girl, I Just Don't Know 'Bout Gurls, quizá la canción más conocida de nuestro asteroide por la versión que los Hellacopters incluyeron de ella en su último trabajo).



La edición española de Readin' Between The Lines —la que yo tengo—, cortesía de No Tomorrow, se enriquecía con poderosas apropiaciones ya publicadas que el cuarteto había realizado de los Stones, los Flamin' Groovies, Died Pretty y Pere Ubu. Si 19th Nervous Breakdown y Second Cousin rinden justo homenaje a los originales, la palma se la lleva la brutal y larga jam que enlaza Mirror Blues y Final Solution y deja patidifuso al oyente al sumar semejante ataque eléctrico al de todo el disco. Queda así éste como colofón perfecto de la discografía de un grupo que en Ragged Glory nunca nos cansamos de alabar, superior a la mayoría que en los noventa se llevó los laureles del rock pero que jamás supo del talento, la pasión y la energía de Asteroid B-612. Grande con todas las letras.
