Favourite album of the year,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Facts of Life (Audio CD)
As an American visiting the UK last May, I made sure to pick up the new music that wasn't available in the US. (Why the hell can't you get James' Millionaires here still anyway?) -- either way, Black Box Recorder's "Facts of Life" became my soundtrack for the train ride back from Leeds to London... and I have been in love with it ever since. I can literally (and I have) listen to it for many weeks on end, and not desire to hear anything else. Just the PERFECT mixture of intelligent preceptions of youth and showing without telling how so many emotions and feelings that "grown-ups" have are the exact same as the childish dramas that are protrayed in the lyrics. The music is delicate but still pressing. This goes down in my book as the best album of 2000 for me.
