Perhaps the best Lou album,
This review is from: Set The Twilight Reeling (Audio CD)
I have always loved this cd, finally I own some decent speakers and listened to it again today with fresh ears, it's beauty is deft.
Sure some of the playing is flawed, mistakes here and there, the unforgiving electronic drum kit; but that's what makes it perfect, its like a jam where they are all in the groove and time stops and the music takes over. Other 'artists' may have done overdubs or retakes to get it right but not Lou. Some songs seem to finish on the wrong note or chord but it feels right.
The lyrics are up there with the best of Lou, bitter and funny.
You may agree that some of his cds are patchy and some are great, this is great.
I just feel like i'm sat in the corner of the room and there is this great rehearsal going on and I am lucky to have witnessed it, that's how I feel everytime I put this on.
