Unbelievably, The Conversation is the first album from Texas in 8 years. The Scottish rockers return nearly 25 years after their debut as they start a new chapter in their story. Featuring 12 new tracks, this is probably the group’s most interesting album to date and gets off to a cracking start with the country-soul styled title track, proving that they can still make great music. Lead singer Sharleen Spiteri has released some solo material while Texas have been quiet but it’s clear that she’s back where she belongs on The Conversation. . It’s comforting when a favourite band returns after a long break and can still deliver the goods – this is certainly the case with Texas.
