Sixteen years after its release, I Trawl The Megahertz has resurfaced as a remastered edition. In 2003, it was released as Paddy McAloon’s solo album. In 2019, it returns under the name of his illustrious group Prefab Sprout. However, nothing here sounds like the luxurious pop from their 1985 album Steve McQueen with its wonderful singles When Love Breaks Down and Faron Young… Originally, the British songwriter created this unique record when he was on the edge of blindness and spent his days listening to the radio. In the early 2000s, McAloon recorded the spoken word vocals of the narrator Yvonne Connors and dressed his 22-minute opening track (I Trawl the Megahertz) with a score full of violins and classical brass. It’s a sound that’s rather intriguing and really quite elegant. The rest of the resurrected album is mostly instrumental, resembling the symphonic score of a feature film that was never shot. Fluctuating between classical, orchestral pop and film score music, the album carries you away by timeless themes that prove that Paddy McAloon is not just another pop artist.  – Max Dembo
