Not many people have had the opportunity to hear the follow up the Wrong People by Furniture. The album was Food, Sex and Paranoia and was released in 1989 on Arista records in the U.S. It was available for about a week before it disappeared. I got a copy from Newbury Comics in Boston, and hold is as one of my "holy grail" cd's as it is a amazing release. The sound and song writing is more mature, and should I say paranoid from the first 3 lp's Furniture released. It is also the last release from the most famously fantastic one hit wonder in the "The Smiths should be this good" category, after their hit Brilliant Mind from 1986.
Tracks that have made their best of album seem like a long lost 60's white soul record include, One Step Behind You, Slow Motion Kisses (as romantic as it sounds), On a Slow Fuse (a great crooner song if Tom Jones every wants to cover it), and Song for a Doberman. Much more dark then the other albums, this is where Furniture became the group they were meant to be. Unfortunely this is where they also fell apart, just like the relationships that every song on the album, Food, Sex and Paranoia documents.
