With a cover that shows that the chap on the front can do better than Botham by getting his leg over, this CD unleashes a veritable volley of bouncers, leg breaks, beamers and the odd googly in its quest to reveal the quirks and oddities of the holy game of cricket. Beautifully observed pastiches intermingle with tales of many characters along the way in the unique Neil Hannon/Divine Comedy fashion. Even Blowers gets an inclusion and well worth it he is. If you are a cricketer, you will recognise some of the characters and smile wistfully as you join in the choruses. If you are a music lover, whilst you will miss many of the nuances you will still love the melodies, the clearness of the lyrics and the performances. Whatever the case, if you don't like this I suggest that you make an appointment to see your GP because it is clear you are very, very unwell indeed!
