I remember hating them at time, but hey, I said, I'll give it a lash. I was an awful cunt back then. Maybe it was me. It wasn't me. It was this anodyne, pablum, half-cocked, mock intellectual, limpwristed smug fest.

The kids just asked me to turn it off. Nuff said.

I still love a couple of B+S singles like Lazy line painter Jane, but the LPs have only ever been ok.

S'all too lazy sounding, feather dusters for plectrums etc.

First listen: I like the feel of the music & instrumentation. It has that breezy summer evening vibe. Nice. Vocally his monotone delivery tends to make the songs sound very similar. Some smart lyrics going on.

Totally this!

Was listening to it this evening with open windows, a nice warm breeze and a top class salad followed by tea and cake. The vibes were relaxed and carefree, but with a hint of that slight sadness that imminent summer brings.

Probably my 2nd fave B&S album after The Boy With the Arab Strap. Although, having given it a good 3 listens today, it's a very close second. Definitely benefits from a few listens.

I know exactly what you mean. You get a few lovely days like this and you think that this is it, summer is here, solid sunshine through til early october but you know it's just a tease.
