If the word 'underachiever' needed a more tangible definition, then this dubious accolade would have to go to Stephen Duffy. He's been penning tunes to twang a million heartstrings for a good 15 years now and has never enjoyed the mainstream success that he deserves but, alas, will never get. This latest offering of Lilac Time tunes are impossible to ignore once they've cajolled you with their charm. Unfortunately, there'll be little chance of this as you'll probably choose to spend your money on a Coldplay album instead. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is a crying shame.

Does Stephen Duffy deserve to be bigger than the Beatles? Not really. After all, you see, superlatives are not really his thing. His charm lies in small observations, fine melodies and insightful lines. Precisely the reason why this album, alongside his previous Lilac Time work, has its place on my own list of favourites from the 20th century...[sic]

I thought I'd reviewed this album already.

This morning I listened to this album all the way through in the train. How often do you do this with an ipod. I thought I'd log on and say, two years later, this is still a wonderful album. Having stood the test of time I think it's one of the very best ( out of around 700 ) I own.

Firstly the sound itself is superb. He's using all sorts of different instruments - acoustic, steel, dulcimers, lord knows what and it just sounds so fantastic, exquisite, organic. There's such a sense of musicality here that it is difficult to describe.

There are three instrumentals, and they're excellent - Ratoon and Broken Cloud equally so.

Lyrically the form is top drawer, and we selected 'Salvation Song' as one of two songs played in our wedding service. You can search for the lyrics online - they really matched what we wanted to say.

Personally, I really like 'Family Coach'. The family coach is all about your family, and how your coach stays the same, whatever you do in life, for better, for worse. He extends the metaphor beautifully, and mixes it up with the Apollo 8 trip to the moon.

Other highlights are the title track and 'I won't die for you'. Fab lyrics, fab music. You can read the lyrics on duffypedia.

This outstanding album is one of the few I have ever heard which has not one duff track. Ironic when it's by a Duffy! Buy it for twice the price and you won't be disappointed. An unqualified five star review.

Quite simply, one of the best albums i've heard in years. The album's theme is about staying up all night, and songs such as 'I won't die for you' & 'Sleepy' wonderfully reflect the dark and pensive atmosphere of the wee small hours. I've noticed that the track 'Family Coach' has received a kicking in some of the other reviews. Can't understand why. Maybe the chorus lyric scans a bit awkwardly, but the intelligence and sentiment are as powerful as ever, and personally, I think it's a strong song with a good melody - exactly what you'd expect from this man. The only downside to it is that you can't do the ironing or hoover the floor whilst listening - not something i'd do whilst listeng seriously anyway. Not a wet album at all, but one to be approached in the right mood, at night, and with the lights out.
