a little depressed
on 25 October 2006
Presumably an album titled anti-depressant should leave you feeling bouyant and joyous. But like the effects of real anti-depressants this just leaves you feeling a little better than before you started.
It's not that it's bad album, it's a perfectly fine lloyd cole album. It's just that it lacks any real spark, any tunes or lyrics that really drag you in or prick up your ears. I doesn't have the full 'car stereo friendly' production of "The negatives" or the craft and honesty of previous album 'music in a foreign language'. What's more the production (or maybe the cd mastering - Im not an audio specialist) is muddy.
Of'course if your a lloyd cole fan you'll buy it and enjoy it, it just isn't something you'll hold to your heart like some of his previous albums. But then again, maybe it's like prozac and takes 4-6 weeks before it starts to take effect.
