I saw an elsebound train, on the overpass
In the driving rain, every ticket costs the same
For where you can't go
Mustang horses, champagne glasses
Anything frail anything wild
It's the price of living motion, what's beautiful is broken
And grace is just the measure of a fall.

I've voted for the one that I've been humming all morning but I'm not entirely sure that's my ONLY favourite! :*:

Ooh what a gorgeous album this is. I really need to hear it a few more times but I'm still going for Roll River Roll with the Sun Refused to Shine a close second.

A review in Danish. He likes it.



Quote:
Velkommen til Richard Hawleys tidslomme – kom ind og snup en kinddans

Sådan set er det kun passende, at Richard Hawleys Lady’s Bridge er den ene af kun to lp’er, undertegnede har fået til anmeldelse de sidste ti år. For den udenforstående vil crooner-balladerne på Hawleys fjerde soloalbum nemlig virke lige så bedagede som den knitrende lyd af en pick-up, der rammer sort vinyl. Men kendere vil vide, at den klassiske genre har markante fortalere den dag i dag – akkurat som lp’en, i øvrigt – og at den i f.eks. Scott Walkers hænder kan være både kunstnerisk vægtig og progressiv. Omgivet af varmt organiske strygere, akustisk guitar og romantisk piano crooner Hawley henført om kærligheden – primært den ulykkelige – og om storbyens skæve skæbner. Tonen er langt fra Walkers højtidelige patos, men rummer en modenhed, der giver sangene pondus. Trods fortiden som guitarist i Longpigs er Hawleys silkebløde stemme som skabt til det dybe croon, og der er ingen falske toner på Lady’s Bridge. Det er heldigvis et album, der tager sig selv og sin genre seriøst – og aldrig forfalder til hverken ironi eller anakronismer.
Af Erik Barkman

Fuck off. It basically just says that Hawley's the dogs and that he used to be in Longpigs and that Hawley's voice 'has a maturity which gives his songs some genuine schwung'. Or something. Fuck it mate, the album's been getting good reviews here, so who cares what they say

I thought you might have compared him to a plate of mashed peas, a night on the baileys or one of my roast beef dinners! :wink:

Just listening to the brass band on Our Darkness - beautiful. I've been listening to some other pre-release music which involves a brass band, lovely.
