I would regard this as the best babybird album, and one of the best albums overall. I have always loved music which explored dark themes, yet often find such music to be hindered by less than impressive vocals - this is certainly not the case with babybird - whether heartbreaking songs or simply disturbing themes, the vocals are tremendous. Thankfully this version has the bonus track of 'hospital' - in my opinion, the best babybird song made.

Easily the best Baby Bird album I've heard. Dark at times, but the tunes keep coming, and it's a shame more people haven't heard it.

I picked this up in a bargain bin and wasn't sure what to expect as i'd only ever heard the awful'You're Gorgeous' and the excellent 'Take me Back'.Luckily,this cd is more like the latter.Some of the words are excellent,brutal and thought provoking(Take me Back being a prime example.)This and other tracks on the album,such as 'Back together' and 'I was never here'are very melodic and the track 'You will always love me'is a very haunting track.However some of the more upbeat tracks lose that 'edge'that the ballards have.Its well worth a listen though.

This guy doesn't get the attention he deserves. The success of the throwaway tune 'Your gorgeous' hardly helped. This album is bursting with good things; intelligence, wit and the creative spark of a talented storyteller. 'Back together' remains one of my all time favourite tunes. Buy this album if you fancy a change from British pop/rock music written by lads in their late teens and twenties.

Yes this is Babybird, yes this is Stephen Jones, and those in the know are aware that he will never appeal to a wide audience. But if you want thought provoking, intelligent lyrics; dark, sometimes disturbing themes; an eclectic mix of melodic and jangly or shuffling and sparse rhythms, this album is for you. 'If You'll Be Mine' is an outstanding track that should have sold better on its release and ridden high in the charts. 'Back together, 'Take Me Back' and 'I was Always Here' are classic Babybird. The album ends with the haunting, 'There's Something Going On' which captures a heartbreaking yet accepting reaction to infidelity. For those who know only 'You're Gorgeous' (the sentiment was sadly misinterpeted by the majority and was actually a common wedding day tune at the time!!) this album might prove too heavy. But for those 'in the know'..........this is, the magnificent Babybird.

Worth the price for the first 3 tracks alone. There is a misconception with friends of mine that Babybird only did "You're Gorgeous", until Gordon Ramsay used "the F Word" for his TV series, but this album (my favourite of theirs) is superb.
