4.0 out of 5 stars Up-beat misery, 22 Dec 2004
An achingly beautiful (and quite catchy) set of songs from the late, great Billy McKenzie (The Associates minus Alan Rankine, sadly). Lyrically intricate and cheerful and pensive by turns - the music is fairly up-beat for Associates tracks but hits the right chord if you just want to be enveloped by great music from a mysteriously iconic and talented artist. From the echoey piano cadences of Strasbourg Square to the obviously eighties pop-influenced All Around The World it's very welcome to listen to these largely non-experimental tracks and just enjoy them for what they are.

The first time I saw this I turned out the lights. Big mistake. I was almost behind the sofa at one point! Yes, its big on moody style and low on real drama but anyone who has worked a night shift somewhere creepy can identify with Martin Bells and his new job - the scenes where he patrols the basement morgue for the first time is truly creepy and stayed with me for a long time. I can rate this as one of my favourite suspense films. Good for a dark winter's evening with the wind whistling outside...
