God, it's good,
This review is from: Coles Corner (Audio CD)
I must admit right now. 3 days ago, Richard Hawley could've been Richard Johnson from Surrey for all I knew.
There is nothing, and I mean, nothing, better than discovering a new artist, then wondering where they've been all your life!!!
To say I love this album is an understatement. Richard has the smoothest Edwyn Collins-esque voice I've ever heard...apart from Edwyn of course!!
Yes, I love this album, and the track 'Just Like the Rain' is probably the perfect song for this kind of genre. A Cohen-esqhe strum leads into a Marty Robbins chorus which is magnificent.
Think El Paso done by The Divine Comedy, and you're probably nowhere close.
I'd give it five, but the album drags a bit towards the end. Pity, as Richard is Sooooooooooooooo much more talented than messrs Blunt, Bedingfield, Powter, etc etc. Miles Better.

I admire your gall for for comparing RH to psueds Blunt, Bed & Powt. I'm awarding your review nil stars. However, I will give you an asterisk which symbolises the arse hole you surely must be.
