Absolutely beautiful...You must own this record
on 17 April 2002
This album is unusually beautiful. I came across King of Convienience by chance, and my music collection has been infinitely enhanced. Every track on this album is an absolute gem. People will at first make the inevitable comparison to Simon and Garfunkel, with moments of Nick Drake. Do not believe them. It cannot be pinned down. This album is a true lady and does not reveal her full charm at first. There is a hint of leg on tracks like 'Toxic Girl', and a bit of flirting on 'Failure'. Then you realise that 'Singing softly to me' is true love, (I have it on constant repeat), 'Summer on the westhill' is gorgeous, with pitch perfect voices. The starkness of their voices and guitars, and the occasional drum beat demands your full attention. The lyrics suit the music and the whole thing is...um...harmoniously divine! This is a must buy album, for anybody who likes good music. It can not be categorised, it is just perfect. Buy this album, Buy two in case something happens to one of them...Buy it!
