I got sent a copy of this, pre-release and I put it on with some trepidation as I had enjoyed 'The Fine Art...' so much. I had not yet read a review and so had not been prejudiced in any way except by the excellence of Jesse's 1st album. This is a VERY good follow-up to his debut, The Fine Art Of Self-Destruction and an album that improves with every listen. From the superb single 'Mona Lisa' which name-checks Shane MacGowan to the beauty of Silver Manhattan and God''s Lonely People this is an album that deserves to be heard. Jesse is a real talent; buy this!
