    Not my favorite or least favorite Badly Drawn Boy album. My biggest problem with this album is more on the production side of things. Most of the songs are very echo-y and unclear. The songs all sound like they were taped in an unfinished basement or as if they are all poor quality mp3 versions of actually songs. The song writing is there though.

    Whether you feel Photographing Snowflakes is a true return to form will depend on your reception of its six-minute title track centerpiece, on which Gough drowsily monotones his way through 10 increasingly whimsical verses with no chorus in sight; you'll either find its slow-motion, pedal-steeled sway charmingly wistful or tediously self-satisfied.

    His return to more intimate recording can't conceal that there's nary a melody worth savoring amid the autumnal folkiness.

    While this album is far from The Hour of Bewilderbeast part two, it does represent a return to Gough's more stripped-down formula of simple, ramshackle pop songs built on electronic and symphonic detritus.
