David Gedgewho formed Cinerama in after dissolving the Wedding Present to explore his interests in film music and sophisticated pop, clearly enjoyed turning out singles on a regular basis in between sessions for full-length albums, and seemingly aware that some fans weren't likely to track them all down, he periodically released compilations that would collect the stray Cinerama tracks that had surfaced on 7"s. This was the idea behind 's This Is Cinerama and 's Cinerama Holidayand more than a decade after Cinerama went into semi-retirement, Gedge has finally completed the cycle with 's Seven Wonders of the Worlda collection of material from five late-period singles as well as a live-in-the-studio session recorded for radio broadcast.
Cinerama was that rare indie pop band that sounded intelligent, refined, and muscular at once; while there was a delicacy to Gedge 's melodies, and the arrangements were often dotted with strings and horns, the music never sounded twee, and the rough-hewn force of Simon Cleave 's guitar was enough to brush away any hint of arty or airy pretense. The material on Seven Wonders of the World follows Cinerama 's waning days, as Gedge slowly but surely retooled the band into a new edition of the Wedding Presentand Easy Rider - Graham Central Station - Aint No Bout-A-Doubt It (8-Track Cartridge, Album) latter tracks do recall that band's more jangly approach than the big-screen pop of tracks like "Health and Efficiency," "Swim," and "Sparkle Honey Rider (Acoustic Version) - Cinerama - Torino but Gedge 's favorite themes of romantic gamesmanship are present throughout, and his gift for songwriting and record making is present on every track including the intimate acoustic performances that appear on a bonus disc.
The set also includes French language versions of two tunes, in which Gedge uses the opportunity to recast "Health and Efficiency" and "Lollobrigida" in a different and more contemplative light, and the acoustic tracks show the songs work even in the most elemental arrangements. Seven Wonders of the World isn't the best collection of Cinerama 's non-LP work, but the consistent quality leaves no doubt Honey Rider (Acoustic Version) - Cinerama - Torino the group's overlooked final gestures were still the work of a unique and masterful band.
