This review is from: Mcalmont (Audio CD)
Revisiting this album after a spell of not listening to it has made me appreciate this hugely under-rated gem. More personal than his later works this is the perfect start to investigate Mcalmonts career.
Reviewers at the time said the album is like a male sung version of the Cocteau's "Heaven or Las Vegas" and they're not far wrong, the guitars sparkle and shimmer and David's voice often soars into the ether effortlessly matching anything Liz Fraser sung.
Theres huge changes in style too from the melancholy "is it raining" to the PSB-esque "Its always this way". I heartily recommend this album and say if you have had even a passing interest in McAlmont then prepared to be amazed by this album, its arguably the best work he's done to date.
