5.0 out of 5 stars Heart of Darkness, 28 Oct. 2000
This review is from: Teenage Snuff Film (Audio CD)
Roland S Howard has created a brilliant collection of songs that capture the inevitable heartbreak of existence. Sounds like heavy stuff? It is. Howard demonstrates just how much he has matured as a songwriter and musician since his days with the Birthday Party (featuring frontman Nick Cave) and he was no slouch then. The inclusion of Mick Harvey (an erstwhile Bad Seed with the aforementioned Cave) on tubs and The Hoopster (known for his work with the Beasts of Bourbon and Kim Salmon) on bass, provides Howard with the perfect backdrop for the dark journey he takes the listener on. Each track is about the dark side of love, even the cover of pop-punkster Billy Idol's "White Wedding" is rendered as a cynical dirge. But the album is not limited to lyrical brilliance, Howard is first and foremost a guitarist and this is his finest work to date. If you like the Beasts of Bourbon's "The Low Road" or Kim Salmon & the Surrealists "Sin Factory", then I suggest you buy this immediately. If you haven't heard them but you just broke up with your girl, then I suggest you buy all three...
