5.0 out of 5 stars Catchy and pretty damned cool !, 4 Nov. 2003
This review is from: Dear Catastrophe Waitress (Audio CD)
Never really expected that much from the new album from Belle and Sebastian, but hey how wrong I was. With a really strong opening with "Step into my Office, Baby" and the title track, "Dear Catastrophe Waitress", the scene is set for a much more cohesive package of tracks than has been seen on a B+S release for quite some time. The production from legendary 80's producer Trevor Horn is far more subtle than you'd expect and has made B+S sound as damned cool as they should be. Already when I listen to Piazza, New York Catcher I can find myself humming the opening bar as it's so catchy and memorable. Overall though the real reason this album works so well is that all the numbers here flow together so well. Above all else Stuart Murdoch's songs of bittersweet romances and fantasy relationships are as good as anything he's ever written. One of my favourite cd's of the year so far.
