Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Uniquely among bands with even a tangential connection to pop, the passage of time and the number of records of theirs you may already own are pretty much irrelevant when sizing up the appeal of Can Our Love..., the fifth album from the decade-old Tindersticks. Partly, it's because this lot, who seem to have sprung fully-formed from the concentrated essence of French art house film, also appear to have spent their youths waiting for middle age to arrive. Mostly though, it's because the unswerving continuity of their work--chiefly remarkable for single-digit BPMs, a bone-dry, Eeyore-ish sense of humour (doubtless not unconnected to their fascination with donkeys) and a luxuriant air of weltschmertz, tristesse, saudade and any other foreign words which cover the black-and-white waterfront of romantic desolation where string sections, shabby-sharp suits and Gauloises are de rigueur--suggests that each Tindersticks album is merely a small corner of a canvas the size of, well, life and love and loss. Once again then you get what you came to swoon for. The dusty Hazlewood-esque intro prefacing Stuart Staples' forlorn, chocolaty mumbles ("dying slowly seems better than shooting myself"). "Don't Ever Get Tired", aching with hope and tender-heartedness. The interwoven vocal lines of "Chilitetime"; the intimate, Cohen-esque voiceover of "No Man In The World". And we get a little bit more, too: namely the suspicion, on hearing the Hammond-shivering, Bobby Womack-drifting-through-molasses seduction of "People Keep Comin' Around" and "Sweet Release", that if Tindersticks have shifted position at all, it's in a slow, elegant sidle toward the spot marked "England's greatest soul band". --Jennifer Nine

To me this brilliant masterly production surpasses that of the previous release 'Simple pleasure' and takes one back to their second album masterpiece 'Tindersticks 2'. While the mood and ambience remains distinctly Tindersticks, there is more passion here, and even moments that tend to explore different territory.
Its similarity to 'Simple pleasure' is in its relatively short length (just over 45 minutes), and the substance of its mood and lyric. Both are compositions of carefully arranged gems that tell the story of relationships and dilemmas of everyday life.
'Can our love...' be as perfect as this music? Almost worth buying for the cover alone. An absolute must for any Tinderenthusiast!

Tindersticks are not for everybody. The music they swirl is most certainly melancholy, but not at all depressing. Lead singer, Stuart Staples has the most quivering, fragile, mumbling, vibrating baritone you are ever likely to hear. His voice sounds like it is about to crack at any moment and that sound, even though it will be beautiful, will break your heart. And it will sink right into the music, which sounds a lot like something Burt Bacharach might come up with, if he were less distant.
I remember getting into the Tindersticks years ago, back in 1994, when there was a lull in Nick Cave releases, and Stuart Staples was a common antidote for such occasions (back before we had a more subdued Nick Cave). And I remember liking them, but eventually getting tired of them. This album, Can Our Love... changes those determinations. It is clear that both the Tindersticks and myself have matured enough over the resulting seven years.
I think it's really a perfect album. It's the kind you can play on a rainy day, and cook pasta so that the windows steam up, and let it play over and over. Every now and then, repeat songs #4 and #8 (Can Our Love... and Chilitetime) because they are worth repeating.

Their last album, 'Simple Pleasure' was a gem, a really smooth, beautiful album you could geniunly call a classic. One main reason is that they cut out the crap and left it at 9 tracks - remember, quality, not quantity. They came across much more as a soul-influenced band in that album, and that trend continues here. This is probably the equal to 'Simple Pleasure' and boasts, in 'Sweet Release' one of the best tracks they have ever recorded; it's worth the price of the album on it's own. 'Tricklin' isn a fairly weak track, but 'Dying Slowly' and 'People Keep Comin Around' (another classic) open the album fantastically well, introducing us to the evolving Tindersticks sound. The title track is great, and the last three wrap up a fantastic album. Buy now, and appreciate Tinderstick heaven.

Can our love...picks up where their last album Simple Pleasures left off. The orchestral frenzy that characterised the early outings are minimised in favour of a more restrained and stark sounding melancholy. Dying slowly, the first track sets the tone, using familiar Tindersticks themes and the emotion doesn't let up. The title track is a slow blistering classic, as is the sweet soul of the closer chilitime. As usual the musicianship is perfect, the production lush and Stuart Staples vocals sound more like Otis than the Vic Reeves club singer of old. Crack open a bottle, open a packet of your favourite cigs and let the pure beauty of this album take over.

Once again, Britain's most undervalued band produce a piece of work that leaves everyone else in the shade. The songwriting is of the high standard Tinderfans have come to expect, the playing is effortless, the arrangements are sublime (no one knows when to bring strings and brass in like Tindersticks), Staple's voice reaches new heights (literally, in the track PEOPLE KEEP COMIN' AROUND), and Hinchliffe's violin is more achingly yearningly beautiful than ever before. For all the talk about how this latest release sees Tindersticks venturing further into the world of classic soul, what struck me on first listen was how it managed to combine that with material and arrangements sounding more like their first album than any work since. This is a great album by a great band. Here's to the next ten years.
