As a Almond fan of the 80's I was 'talked' into buying this on CD with all the lyrically waxed reviews pointing to it being a masterpiece. Of course, the truth is it is dire effort as the original sales and commercial success of it factually show.
It is filled with poor quality songs trying to shock with style copied lyrics of some of the greats. It just irritates. I thought this man was a genius as a child. I feel abused as listening to it as an adult I can only assume that Almond was little more than a dirty old man. Sadly, Almond is not among the Scott Walkers or Brels and quite rightly so. He does not deserve to be. The biggest insult of all for me was being bitten twice. Once in the 80's for the vinyl and again in 2007 for buying it on CD.
