Alligator - no bite. no bark.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Alligator (Audio CD)
I have been forcing myself to listen to some hip new tones recently - and I have purchased Cease To Begin, Dark Was The Night (Red Hot Compilation) and a few others. This album constantly came up as a 'also purchased recommendation' so I thought I'd give it a go. I like beautiful melancholy as much as the next 39 yr old who is bored of all the music in the world at the moment. But this is just rather cardboardy, tinny, dark for darks' sake (to suits the singers voice?). I have tried and tried with it, but its off to Oxfam with it.
If I want dark, I'll listen to In The Flat Field, if I want melancholy I'll listen to Nick Drake.
Sorry guys - nothing personal - just my preference.
