Gaze is a poor, sickly little thing, a runt-of-the-litter album. It’s a headlong freefall into mediocrity, the band relying on torrential peltings of lyrics that all struggle to fit onto the tracks in time. Musically, it’s kept to the same ano setup, all mostly brisk, chirpy, shallow, and instantly forgettable.
Gold by The Beautiful South is the third greatest hits album to be released by the band. It is similar in design to other "Gold" albums released by bands either currently or previously of various labels under the Universal Music Group. The album is a 2 disc collection of both single and album tracks taken from the first 8 of the bands back catalogue. It was released without the band's consent and had zero input from the band.
