Music really doesn't get better than this - I bought this album when it was released in 1999,and writing here in May 2002, it's never been off my play list. This album is full of beautiful paradox: The Soft Bulletin sounds so utterly unique and 'on the edge' - real experimentation - whilst at the same time being so accessible and popular; the lyrics are both simplistic and deep. The overall feeling is just very uplifting, which is much harder to do than downbeat, without being sickly and vacuous.
The joyful confusion of life, being alive, has never been more apparent and enjoyable. Watch out for the next album and tour during 2002.
