The (not so) new Jeff Buckley? Beautiful listen,
This review is from: Lustre (Audio CD)
I'd never heard of Ed Harcourt before, but a strong review in the Times and the likeness to Jeff Buckley prompted me to investigate. And for once, a review that deserves it's hype and comparisons. It is indeed a rather enchanting listen. Not every song is a killer - there's at least three or four standard maudlin fillers not to my taste - but there's enough here to keep you listening over again... Church of No Religion, Lustre, Do As I Say hold their own against Buckley's all too few gems.
With so much dire dirge championed by so called music critics, well done The Times Culture Magazine for covering this refreshingly beautiful album.

I am so pleased you took a chance on Ed Harcourt! I did the same back in 2004 and have never looked back. I think he's brilliant and you'll find a lot of people hear about him through word of mouth. The Times review was well deserved. Try and catch him live, he's a charismatic soul.
