I sat down ready and excited to listen to this CD, and I admit the first listen to it I was quite dissapointed. For some reason I was thinking it was going to have a Belle and Sebastian-esq sound to it, but that is exactly the whole point of the CD, Stewart put it together because the songs didnt fit belle and sebastian.
I have no idea how many times I have heard the CD-Im loving it! The girls all have beautiful voices and all fit in together, the sound is sexy and fresh and as usual with Murdock his lyrics are unique and you will only get them on many listens after, which then brings me to the only fault of the Cd, it is suppose to be a story put to words and I have read the story and I cant really fit it to the music/lyrics. Some little snippets have some reference about her eating and having to have routine, the only three songs which I think have relavance is God help the Girl, I just want your jeans and A down and dusky blonde....which are some of the best songs :) But none the less I love this cant get the tunes out of my head!!
