      Disadvantages

      This one was everything it wasn't supposed to be for me

      When I got a hold of this album I didn't know what to expect, having read a review that basically described it as the bees knees, I had to give it a go. I had a completely different view in my head of how the band would sound.

      For some reason I imagined a macabre version of Townes Van Zandt instead the vocalist goes for a kermety frog version of Nick Cave, rather than sounding haunting he seems a bit bored. Like Depeche Mode in a library. The pace of the music is exceptionally slow, lyrically the words are very good but the singer seems to have such a dreary unenthusiastic style of singing that it really doesn't work for me. The more countryish songs like "Cold, Cold, Cold" are some of the better ones.

      I can see a bit of Crash Test Dummies in this band and as I wasn't particularly fond of them, this isn't one that I recommend either. Just about every song sounds the same, slow, monotonous and a bit whingey this is definitely not my thing! This is very much a wallow in the bog feeling sorry for yourself type of album, I had high expectations of this and it let me down completely!
