Electric Landlady
Format: Audio CD|Change
Price:£8.49+ £1.26 shipping

on 26 November 2000
Although it never quite reaches the divine heights of 'Kite', 'Electric Landlady' treads its way through pop, folk, funk and even Latin American musical styles with some ease and has much to offer. The album's title is a pun on the Hendrix album 'Electric Ladyland' and is an indication of the wry sense of humour that runs throughout and typical of MacColl's lyrics. Whilst the opener, 'Walking Down Madison' may be a little heavy handed, both 'All I ever wanted' and 'He never mentioned love' are delightfully light and breezy, delivered in a way that only Kirsty can. And yes, the Latin American influenced 'My Affair' is perhaps a bridge too far, but MacColl can be forgiven this indulgence considering the quality of the rest of the material. Kirsty MacColl is a hugely underrated singer/songwriter and any album that ends with 'Some lives read like a postcard, and some lives read like a book. I'll be happy if mine doesn't read like a joke from an old Christmas cracker.' has got to be worth £6.99 of anyone's money.
