5.0 out of 5 stars 0898 The Beautiful South: Beautiful South - When I'm 84 I'll probably still be listening to this treat!, 13 May 2011
By 
This review is from: 0898 (Audio CD)
This third album from The Beautiful South, Hull's best musical export, just keeps on going along the path established in their first two outings. Packed full of jaunty, multilayered, jazzy, unique music that hooks you in and gets you listening to the meaningful, cynical, witty lyrics.

From the defence of the drunk (old red eyes is back) to the swipe at lad culture (the domino man) this is track after track of perfect nineties pop. One of the most consistent of the BS's albums, this has no filler. It is an album for those who like music with something to say, and played with meaning by a finely honed and talented bunch of musicians. Classic.

As with all BS albums, the cover art is unusual and visually striking. I have to say it is probably my second favourite cover after Quench
