CD REVIEW: Texas 25 by Texas

Its 25 years since Texas entered the UK charts with their debut hit I Don't Want a Lover and this latest release celebrates their quarter century with four new tracks and re workings of the bands greatest hit highlights with NYC soul outfit Truth and Soul.

Long-term fans of Texas will know of the bands soulful tendencies, this album sits new songs such as Start a Family alongside stripped back live versions of Halo and Say What You Want.

Texas 25 defines the band as they are in 2015 and is an enjoyable release particularly for fans of a more stripped back rawer live sound.
