Format: MP3 Download
Kevin Coyne's 1979 collaboration with Dagmar Krause is a concept album that allegedly investigates the relationship between the moors murderers. Although never explicitly mentioned as in the Sex Pistols gross track on The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle, the sleeve notes and the lyrics carry clues. Had the psychoses been less obvious, Babble might have brought the artist commercial success since the tunes, arrangements and above all vocals are of most sublime. Krause and Coyne take turns to sing solo except on Shaking Hands With The Sun and the concluding segue It Really Doesn't Matter/We Know Who We Are.

The art song Are You Deceiving Me? opens the work on an introspective note that halfway through turns harsh as Coyne's vocals fill up with anguish. Then Dagmar takes up the tale on Come Down Here in an eerie vocal arrangement where repressed shrieks, yelps and sobs bubble under and into her pure folkie voice. Her lover suffers from depression that drives him to demon drink, it emerges. Dead Dying Gone is a rock number with edgy rhythms that accentuate the narrator's unhinged mood as it swings from megalomania to the death wish. One of the catchiest songs, Stand Up, is an uptempo rocker characterized by rollicking pianoforte, a propulsive beat and striking tempo changes.

Ms Krause's vocal prowess becomes clear on the mournfully melodious Lonely Man where her alto occasionally ascends into the higher registers. The narrator's focus on her lover's mind adds a sinister undertone.
