Something Wicked This Way Comes
Something Wicked This Way Comes

 


The Enid had not released an album since 1979's Six Pieces. Since then Godfrey and Stewart had busied themselves running the studio they had set up at Beanside Lodge. According to Godfrey in a recent interview, Something Wicked...was written and composed in their spare time, between sessions for the likes of Kim Wilde and Mari Wilson. Both he and Stewart were becoming increasingly dissatisfied making music for others when they had unfulfilled ambitions of their own. To this end, and without label representation, they released this politically-charged masterstroke. Featuring vocals for the first time, the overall feel is far removed from the Lickerish-era Enid, though crucially without losing their identity, Something Wicked...was their most accessible album to date, and remains their biggest seller.
