5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to the Beautiful South: Beautiful South - Straight in at No.1 for me!, 13 May 2011
By 
This review is from: Welcome To The Beautiful South (Audio CD)
Following from the format laid down in the Housemartins, jaunty bouncy tunes which belie the seriousness of the lyrics, and really eye catching album covers, the Beautiful South's debut record is a corker.

Opening with the witty `Song for whoever', then trawling through subjects as disparate as loneliness (I'll Sail This Ship Alone) and murder (The Woman In The Wall) with a distinctly jazzy tinge and always with a literate style and a sense of humour, this is a collection of eleven fine songs with no filler. Perfect pop, these can be listened to intently or as background music, but however you chose to listen you will be tapping your foot and humming along in no time. A thoroughly entertaining record, one of the finest offerings available from the early nineties.
