Product description

Amazon.co.uk

If Robert Forster had been hoping that his first solo album, Danger In The Past, would break the pattern established by the albums he'd made with The Go-Betweens--that is, better reviews than penicillin, cultish adoration and a total failure to sell in the substantial amounts his talent had long deserved--he was disappointed. Not for the first time, Forster would have been well within his rights to decide that the world really didn't deserve any more of his fine songs and given some thought to perhaps getting a job. To the eternal gratitude of the enlightened, he didn't: Calling From A Country Phone is gorgeous. There is perhaps--as almost suggested by the title--a more explicit country influence at work here than on other Forster or Go-Betweens albums, but otherwise it's business as usual. Which is to say Forster's weary, dispassionate--yet always strangely tuneful--mumble delivers another collection of thoughtful, wise and bleakly witty songs of a quality that would, in a remotely sane world, ensure that their author was regularly bracketed alongside Leonard Cohen as pop's supreme ombudsman of heartbreak. Rarely has the general record-buying public displayed such a comprehensive inability to spot a good thing when shown one. --Andrew Mueller
