So you don't consider Mark Hart a proper CH member or a key ingredient of the CH sound from at least 93 onward? Yes with Neil and Nick TOE has two original members and I never disputed that. But as Mark rejoined the reunited band I was disappointed as a fan that he didn't get to play on the whole album or at least more than four tagged on tracks. I think he deserved better and the fans did too.
The funny thing is tho that paradoxically TOE sounds like more of a band album than Intriguer.
The most disappointing thing to me about CH since they reformed is that they've now been reduced to just one of Neil's side projects that will be picked up and put down at Neil's fancy. Maybe it's just me but I think the band's legacy deserves a bit better.
