3.0 out of 5 stars Salt and vinegar, 10 July 2008
This review is from: The Cross Eyed Rambler (Digi Packaging) (Audio CD)
Biscuit Boy's back. Well he's not as such and nor's Crackerman. He's just Heaton Paul.

Nice work in the main. Lead off single "Mermaids & Slaves" is catchy and sharp, remeniscent of the Housemartins.
"The Pub" is Heaton as his incisive best and for once the music is sharp enough to match it.
"God Bless Texas" is a blast at the Lone Star state with some slightly clumsy posturing in the lyrics.
"Little Red Rooster" is a charming country-esque breeze.

"Everything Is Everything" is a grumpy but thought-provoking closer which works save for the sound of Heaton swearing like a trooper and sounding like a Geography teacher trying to impress his sixth form class with "bad words."

Welcome back Mr Heaton. Nice to have you with us with all your idiosyncratic charm. The songwriting arena would be a poorerp lace without you and we look forward to your next one.
