Maverick a Strike was released in the summer of 1997 and it summed up that summer really, with the marvellous Sunday Shining providing a cool and sultry soundtrack to the summer. Finlay Quaye himself was quite odd, a Scottish Ghanaian with a penchant for lazy lyrics and reggae, he seemed to be enjoying his life as a pop star and it might be that his enjoyment possibly pushed itself too far and he didn't really produce too much more after this. I found my copy of this album the other day and had a listen to it, I bought this when CD's were full price and do remember that there were only 3 or 4 songs that I really enjoyed, i'm not sure if it was ...

Maverick a Strike Finley Quaye (1997) I cannot believe that this album is over a decade old, OMG. This was Quaye's debut album, and it got a MOBO to my recollection or at the very least a nomination. I was blown away by a couple of songs on this album, and when recently transferring my CD collection to iTunes (nearly done, then I start on my wife's CD's) I thought I would simply transfer all the tracks over, then thought; actually I had better listen to them again.

This is the debut album from Trickys nephew Finlay Quaye and includes the excellent singles Sunday Shining, Even After All and Your Love Gets Sweeter. The album is a mix of reggae styles and indie, mixed with a little brit pop, spiced with bass lines here and there. It actually doesn't work at all for 30-50% of the album and so you will find yourself skipping tracks. But for the areas where it does work it works extremely well, and you can't help but like it. ... Read the complete review

Finley Quaye's debut album was well recieved in the music press when it was released in 1997. I remember a lot of music critics singing it's praises and it was well deserved. It opens with the dub/reggae sound of 'Ultra Stimulation' and this sets the pace for the rest of the album. Quaye is heavily influenced by reggae. But other styles mingle into the songs. "Sunday Shining" is a little more guitar based. 'It's Great When We're Together" is extremely soulful and this track is where Quaye's voice really stands out the most. 'Your Love Gets Sweeter' has a bluegrass/cajun sound and other songs delve ... Read the complete review
