  • Summary: This is the solo debut for the former frontman of Suede and The Tears.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 4 out of 11
  2. Negative: 2 out of 11
  1. What makes Brett Anderson succeed as solo debut is that it truly presents Anderson on his own, willing to sound different, quieter than he did when in a band, willing to open his heart without regard for consequences.

    Gone is the Suede-lite of The Tears. Instead we get acoustic guitars, lush string arrangements and the previously cagey Anderson pouring his heart out. [Apr 2007, p.92]
  3. A near-perfect debut. [#17, p.82]
  4. There's a fair bit of self-indulgence here, but the former Suede leader has a way with these things, and the result is generally listenable.
  5. 11 tracks of the same old maudlin balladry.
  6. 40
    His lyrics don't always match his ambition. [Apr 2007, p.108]
  7. This is hollow, pretentious and deeply dull music. [Apr 2007, p.116]
