Customer Review

on 3 April 2003
I enjoyed The Facts of Life and expected more of the same, but I was actually surprised that this was even better (wasn't too bothered about the first album). As I type this I can hear the playground chant of 'Blackbox Recorder' from The School Song ringing in my head. The initial comment from people I play this to is "It sounds like St Etienne" but I then ask them to listen to the lyrics, they are the real key to all this - acerbic, haunting, telling and FUNNY and all set against melodies to die for. Hearing material so arch and camp makes me want put on my silk smoking jacket, get out my cigarette holder and SMIRK from my window at the passers by. FAB, BUY IT!
