Old Ones are the Best,
This review is from: Easy Pieces (Audio CD)
Yes, finally managed to get a CD copy of this album. I have it on tape from the day I bought it back in 1993 and now I can have it on CD and can transfer it to my ipod. Although it is hard to get hold of on CD and expensive it is well worth the money, great value for a classic album.
Although Rattlesnacks seems to be the prefered Lloyd Cole and Commotions album as an avid and long standing Lloyd Cole fan I think this is by far the better album.
All songs are classic Lloyd lyrics and music. Listening to it all again on CD is magical and hard to pick out one song among the others as one of those classic albums that every song is as good as the next. If you are new to Lloyd Cole then "Rich" and "Cut Me Down" are the more unknown songs to be hooked on. Then the classic "Brand New Friend" and "Lost Weekend" are everyones favourites.
Great lyricist. The songs of Bell X1 remind me of Lloyd's style for lyrics which is probably why I like them. So if you like Bell X1 you should give Lloyd Cole a try.
