This is the one...

This is an album that brilliantly explores heartbreak, loss and the emotional wounds of time gone by. It enunciates the pain of the unspoken with a precise honesty. 'What did it you want it to be?' Indeed.
The barfly's wearing of life's disappointments, and its aching lost potential, dominates. The storytellers in these songs have 'seen things you people have never seen'.
This vinyl rerelease is awesome in its detail. The sound is mesmerising. Flawlessly pure. Every note floats free in a space of its own. It's going to be written about as a deal breaker in terms of what a vinyl reissue should/could sound like.
A bargain. Buy now. Because people talk, blogs blah blah and reviewers accord provenance that becomes other's investment. If you loved this before on CD this is essential;the music is operating on a new platform. If you have never heard its singular, wounded wisdom then now is the time to sit down and listen.
