This review is from: Like Drawing Blood (Audio CD)
This is an exuberant album featuring lots of drums and percussion, reggae and clever sampling, including a base rhythm from Harry Belafonte. The lyrics are clever, but often dark and sad, even when the music is upbeat. Your Heart's a Mess is heartbreaking, full of yearning and compassion, while Thanks for Your Time is hilarious and will remind you of every time you've tried to call a big company. Coming Back and The Only Thing I Know are both very powerful, stick-in-your-head songs. If you enjoyed Making Mirrors, you'll like this one.
