We start on the "I" section of the A-Z today (which will take us well into May!), with this track from the Vauxhall and I album.
What do we think?
I like the "anonymous call, a poison pen" part, the way he sings it. The music is fine. It sounds nice. It's kind of sedate but it's a pretty good album track.
A quite good song along with several others on Vauxhall. The large number of quite good songs on Vauxhall makes me surprised that so many people think it's the best album he's made. Viva Hate only has two songs that are less than brilliant.
After all he is the Pope of Mope!Agreed! I think it works really well in the context of the overall album, and I do love the way he sings that part too, might be one of my favourite understated vocal performances on the album. I suppose the lyrics are a little self-pitying, but I don't necessarily mind that either. Sometimes it's nice to wallow!
