In My Own Words:
Anniversary of what is that meant to be underneath my birthday? There are so many...first bought record, dog/cat dying, first 'profane experience involving sexual organs' (had to delete naughty 'f' word as profanity not allowed on here, oh dear me!

I adored 'Queen of Denmark' and waited (and waited) longingly for this one. I have to admit that more of the same would have been fine: I'd have consumed delightedly. I'm a big fan of Kraftwerk, Goldfrapp and all things electronica so when info-leaks began dripping tales of Hercules and Love Affair type sounds I began to froth at the ears.

That album is a great grower and I love it more every time I hear it - pity about the pretty dire follow-up though.

I've been waiting for something like this for many years. Beth Gibbons hinted at it with 'Tom the Model' but then left the baby out in the cold on its own. This is sassy, sexy and very classy. And, better still, very few of my friends knew where it had come from and I love that element of surprise and difference. It was one of my very best buys of last year. You can't be disappointed!
