The Butler's done it,
This review is from: Richard Butler (Audio CD)
As a big fan of the Psychedelic Furs I was very excited by the prospect of this release, and I'm gratified to say I haven't been let down. This is very much a return to form for Richard Butler - in my opinion much more focused and rounded than his Love Spit Love output.
It's not epoch-shattering stuff, certainly, but the album demonstrates Butler's ever-present readiness to experiment with his song-writing; that it works so successfully must be due in no small measure to the obvious talents of Jon Carin, who has produced and, it seems, provided all the instrumentation on the album.
The whole album is truly excellent, but for me the highlight is "Nothing's Wrong"; with its ambiguous lyric and quirky yet pleasing sound, it is stamped with all that makes Butler's song-writing great. All in all, this is an extremely welcome return for an always interesting song-writing talent, and I can only hope that we hear much, much more from Butler and Carin.
