5.0 out of 5 stars Legendary, 18 Dec 2009
You can't help but feel endearment for Beans on Toast - his music is brimming with honesty and humour. You cannot say these songs are a technical wonder, because they are mostly simple (and sometimes, quite similar in tune) little ditties. But things such as extra sting sections and layered backing vocals are not the reason that anyone would listen to this marvelous albumn. It is Beans' gravely voice, and the relatable stories he tells through his songs of messy weekends, feelings of helpless frustration we all have at our government and seemingly bleak future, and of course the awkward marvel of the one night stand. A genuine and somehow decent artist who deserves your ears :)
Yeah Ghost (Cd Album) ~ Zero 7

People appear to have some hang ups about this albumn, this new direction from zero 7, though I am in full support of it.

The works of Selima Hill - collected here in this hefty volume - include poetry so original and delicately woven, that even on being read the third, fourth, thousandth time, still manage to affect me. Despite heavy themes such as mental illness, shakey family relationships, loss of personal identity and death, Hill retains a lightness to her works, often infusing them with humour. The strange juxstaposioning of images her style is known for serve to defamiliarise you from these subjects - previously pawed over in so many films and trashy magazines - so you come to them with new eyes, capable of a new empathy and understanding far from the voyeristic gawping much of our media panders to.
