And rightly so. Bass heavy 'Jenny was a Friend of Mine' borrows considerably from Bowie's 'Ashes to Ashes' and forms part of a trilogy (along with 'Midnight Show' and an as yet unreleased track) about the murder of a girl by her jealous ex. Compelling stuff, and a great opener to the album.
The two singles, 'Mr Brightside' and 'Somebody Told Me' (again seemingly about jealous lovers) sound even better when complemented… Read more
