4.0 out of 5 stars TBS *sniff* fourth *sniff* album, 21 Mar 2003
This review is from: Miaow (Audio CD)
This was recorded and promoted in a rather dubious and emotional period for Paul Heaton, which is strange, because we'd assumed he was always dubious and emotional. Whatever your opinion, the mellower musical approach only makes the lyrics seem darker than ever . Heaton would never be as melodramatic as to record a nervous breakdown concept album but with the breezy pop of Worthless Lie ("And when she calls i hope its you that dials") you'd never think it. Only on Mini Correct does the good old suburban dialogue come in to full flow (because Worthless Lie'll have you sobbing before you've caught the plot, if you're into that) and not a track too soon. The Norman Cook (spit) produced Hooligans is a little too abrasive for some tastes (think Fatboy meets 1974) and Poppy struggles with both chord pattern and metaphor simultaneously before reaching an exhaustive close to an emotionally draining (but strangely compelling) album. Way to go, El Heato.
