Happy Ending - Fairly Good, Based on 3 Critics

PopMatters - 70
Based on rating 7/10

There’s something rather idiosyncratic about Glenn Tilbrook’s latest solo album, Happy Ending. There are four reasons why you could very quickly put the sometime Squeeze co-main man in the dock for idiosyncratic tendencies. Number 1: it’s all acoustic and no electric guitars. Number 2: Tilbrook’s kids sing backing vocals on a couple of tracks.

Glenn TilbrookHappy Ending(Anchor and Hope Music)3 1/2 out of 5 stars Those familiar with the bulging Squeeze catalog know the UK band was far more inventive than the power pop that dominated their most memorable music. Deep album tracks showed a darker, less effervescent sound and some moderately successful experimental tendencies that were bubbling under the surface. On his own, Squeeze frontman Glenn Tilbrook sneaks some of that inventiveness into his solo albums resulting in this, his first acoustic release and fourth of original material.

Record Collector - 60
Based on rating 3/5

Half of the Squeeze songwriting partnership unleashes his fifth solo album. Quirky you’d expect – no drums or electric guitars, for a start – but the words jump from the booklet, suggesting either Glenn’s been learning from Chris Difford or has been hiding his lyrical light under a bushel. Squeeze are currently collaborating with Danny Baker on an East London-based TV series that will feature more new material.
