Turns out, no.

Third listen down and I think I can safely say this not for me. Musically, they go to some great places and sound a lot like Tindersticks in places. The instrumental outro to "Dylan in the Movies" is great but the vocals and the lyrics completely ruin this for me. The lyrics are terrible, pseudo-Morrissey smugness combined with embarrassing rhyming dictionary-enhanced lines ("she had the knowledge to go to college"; "boy on your bike, what are you like"). Actually, smug pretty much sums up the whole thing for me. So, pretty but forgettable music and some decent album covers are all I can really appreciate from this lot.
