Hugh matures into something of a crooner,
This review is from: Beyond Elysian Fields (Audio CD)
Saw Hugh in a solo unplugged show playing most of this album before I heard it; I was amazed how I could not get some of the tunes out of my head, especially Cadiz and Henry Moore.
There are a couple of filler tracks as with any album but for the most part there are some superbly crafted, catchy great songs. I play this over and over again. As usual with Hugh some intelligent and sometimes humourous lyrics, and his voice has matured into a real crooner.
I won't even go into whether this sounds like the Stranglers, of course it doesn't, but plenty of people ask me who it is, who would not dream of listening to them.
I am a big fan of most of Hugh's solo stuff, this is probably the one I play the most; like the other reviewers said there is something cool about this album, and I find Cadiz especially beautiful. It grows and grows on you; highly recommended
