Why This Album Is So Great:

I'm a sucker for melancholic music and artists who are sentimental fools and have this twisted approach to love and life in general. Lloyd Cole is one of these. He may not be as pathetic as Morrissey, one of my other favourites, but he has that certain quality of seeming quite lost in emotionally high waters. Musically, this album stands out in several ways. First, it's simply world class pop music. Second, the album is divided into two parts. The first with the songs (1-6) wrapped in orchestral arrangements and the second with more traditional rock arrangements. Listen to songs like "Half Of Everything", "Man Enough" and find yourself strangely pleased with the fact that such a thing as heartache exists...

Overall Rating (on a scale from 1 to 10): 8
