Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Glenn Tilbrook (vocals, guitar, keyboards); Chris Difford (vocals, guitar); John Bentley (vocals, bass guitar); Stephen Large (keyboards); Andrew J. Jones (synthesizer, percussion); Simon Hanson (drums).
  • Audio Mixers: Glenn Tilbrook; Andrew J. Jones.
  • Recording information: Charlton and Albury Court Studios, Deptford.
  • The very title of Spot the Difference suggests there are notable variations between this collection of re-recorded hits and the originals, but a quick listen reveals that Squeeze are taunting their audience to differentiate these painstaking re-creations from the originals. Apart from the fact that Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford are several years older -- a fact they take no pains to disguise -- these 15 re-recordings could pass in a pinch for the originals, the arrangements and instrumentation uncannily mimicking the classics. While this hardly supplants those originals, Spot the Difference is a fun spin for the devoted and a good advertisement for Squeeze's reunion tour, proving they still have the knack to entertain. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (p.73) - "[I]t's a reminder that songs like 'Take Me I'm Yours' have aged surprisingly well." -- Grade: B

Mojo (Publisher) (p.96) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]hese are cleverly faithful copies of the originals....This never less than excellent fun."

Record Collector (magazine) (pp.87-88) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "It is, indeed, quite a challenge to 'spot the difference' between the old and new versions....A cheery little exercise..."

Uncut (magazine) (p.105) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[The album] confirms Chris Difford's meticulous attention to archival detail....Impressively artful forgeries all round..."
