Customer Review

on 26 March 2002
'Dogs In The Traffic' provided a dramatic shift from the stylised, polished funk of its more commercially successful predecessor 'Strange Kind of Love' to heralding the melancholic, acoustic-driven arrangements which would deliver chief songsmith James Grant considerable acclaim in subsequent years.
The nigh perfect record for a whisky-induced evening, 'Dogs In The Traffic' features Grant's songwriting at it's very finest. From the sublime pedal-steel balladary of 'You're Not The Only One' to the punchy 'My Love Lives In A Dead House', the album is an exercise in subtlety utilising strings and horns to uplifting effect over Grant's near-baritone vocal.
Love and Money's music had that rare combination of discerning melody and musical refinement which makes latter-day peers such as Travis appear sadly diluted and predictable by comparison.
The definitive release from one of the most talented bands Scotland has ever produced. No worthwhile collection should be starved of this album.
