This review is from: Absent Friends (Audio CD)
Mr Hannon just gets better with age, like Wine or cheese!

1. Absent Friends - Wonderful curtain raiser. Poignant and touching but enough going on to get your feet going. Had me welling up at the first listen. Kudos for the 80's theme tune popping up too! (10)

2. Sticks & Stones - Simple but scathing muse on the mysteries of attraction. Lyrically very smart. (8)

3. Leaving Today - Love the lyrics but find the music a bit of a dirge to be honest. (7)

4. Come Home Billy Bird - Fantastic song and a worthy single. Humourous, anecdotal lyrics with a real emotional kick at the end. Lovely to hear Lauren Laveren (of Kenickie/XFM fame) adding backing vocals. (10)

5. My Imaginary Friend - Starts like a novelty record but ends with real pathos. Surprisingly touching and one of my wifes faves. (8)

6. The Wreck of the Beautiful - Weakest song on the album as it is simply not memorable. Nothing really wrong with it but.... (6)

7. Our Mutual Friend -In my humbe opinion, the best song written thus far this decade. (10)

8. Happy Goth - Another sounds-like-a-joke-song-but-isn't track. Will ring true for a lot of people. Nice Star Wars reference too. (9)

9. Freedom Road - Div Com go country! not as horrendous as it sounds. This is a world weary spot on performance. (9)

10. Laikas Theme - brief insturmental. Does nothing wrong (6)

11. A Charmed life - 'My Way' for the modern age. (10)
