England based band Latin Quarter - melodically engaging and lyrically challenging. The Imagination of Thieves, is perhaps their finest full-length album since their 1985 debut album, Modern Times. Latin Quarter is still one of the most musically and lyrically relevant bands in Pop music today.

Latin Quarter ? The Imagination of Thieves.
Back in the 'glory days' of Rock music - the '60s through the '80s - listeners were assaulted on Top 40 radio by 'protest' and 'political' music wrapped up in a good melody. From Bob Dylan to The Clash - just to name two of many - artists were inserting thought-provoking messages into those catchy tunes. For those who want to stay informed and inspired, there are plenty of musical artists who still make records that are melodically engaging AND lyrically challenging. For the better part of 30 years, Latin Quarter has remained one of those bands.

Latin Quarter has not lost the spark that ignited their souls in the early '80s. Their 2016 album, ;The Imagination of Thieves', is perhaps their finest full-length since their 1985 debut album, 'Modern Times'. Although their 2012 'comeback' album 'Ocean Head' and the 2014 follow-up 'Tilt' were near-perfect, this release is chock full of lovely moments that evoke a time when songs were written from the heart and not on an assembly line.

Songs like "Below The Water," "Thieves' Imagination," "Should Have Been Buried," "I Am Refugee" and "A Bank Robber's Lament" are just as good if not better than anything LQ has released in their three decade career. And while the band's line-up has fluctuated over time (only Skaith, Jeffries and drummer Martin Ditcham remain from Tilt's line-up), their reason to exist is evident on 'The Imagination of Thieves' - Latin Quarter is still one of the most musically and lyrically relevant bands in Pop music today.
