5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST ALBUM OF LAST YEAR !!, 12 Jun 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Hour Of Bewilderbeast (Audio CD)
I was unaware of this mans tallent before buying this album and was pleasently surprise by its mood, variety of styles and use of instruments in each of the tracks. I love every song on this album and this CD has become one of the best and most played CD's in my vast collection. My favourite songs on this album are "The Shining", "Another Pearl", "This Song" and "Dissilusion". "The Shining" is a great start to the album with soft yet subtle cello and french horn playing the main theme which is then repeated by arpeggios on accoustic guitar. Damon Gough's voice enters at irregular intervals which makes the song easy to remeber and a good one to sing along to on a lonely, quite night in. "The Shining" falls in deep contrast to the rocky guitar riffs on "Dissilusion". This song is the most up-beat song on the album and really gets your foot tapping! Badly Drawn Boy is discovering and improving the newest style of music today. His music is catchy, intelligent and full of unexpected forms and styles, for instance the image of guitars being played underwater on "Fall in a River". His popularity was increased by his winning of the Mercury Music Award, and unlike past winners like Talvin Singh I think Badly Drawn Boy is going to be around for a while longer producing more great albums and hit singles. If you like good music, you'll like this album! Buy it now!..
