Still delightful after all these years!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter (Audio CD)
I had this on Vinyl from the day it came out and must have played it hundreds of times, but that was back then. Because I don't play my vinyl any more, I probably hadn't listened to this for 20 years and felt a little nervous ordering the CD from Amazon. Would it sound dreadfully dated and corny and crush all my fond memories of it and the Incredibles in general?
I need not have worried; it still sounds as fresh and delightful as the day I first heard it and every song on it is beautiful with some delightful and unusual instrumentation, wonderful,evocative and sensitive lyrics and eerily haunting vocals.
I could do without the odd kazoo here and there (now that DOES sound dated!!) but otherwise, the whole thing is a triumph and an evocative intoduction to the work of these two singular and unique songwriters.
Do take a listen and be transported back to a simpler, more energised time.
