5.0 out of 5 stars
mine away..., 15 Jan. 2004
I've jsut rediscovered this album after the passing of about 15 years.
I'm 34 now and had thought I wouldn't like it anymore, that it would be a somewaht embarassing reminder of the time when I took myself extremely seriously and was prone to bouts of navel gazing...
But then the synth loops and thumping drums grab your attention - musically it still sounds unique - but it's the lyrics that make you really listen.
The themes of doubt, love, sacrificie, loneliness... they are all still here as I remember personally and still seem universally relelvant without sounding trite. And Jools Holland's piano still sounds fantastic.
It's one of the few records that still induces goosepimples on listening. Buy it.
