Another Hugh Grant soundtrack !
on 15 May 2007
Despite the tea cosy hat,the ragamuffin threads and the luxuriant beard. Mr Gough is no art school,angst ridden,folk inspired singer songwriter.
The music of Badly Drawn Boy can be summerised in a single word...POP !
With lush orchestration, intensively tweeked production and a seamless thread of inoffensive easy listening songs,BDB provides us with another mellow album of Brit 'Chick-Flick' songs.
It's not as if we haven't been here before but each subsequent album now out blands the last.
Middle of the road love songs are all very well but after all these years,critics might be entitled to ask...'where's the beef !'.
