Is A Woman is one of my very favourite albums, but I don’t think it’s especially representative of them. It’s VERY low-key and sparse, very much a late night album. Damaged is brilliant. Aw C’Mon/No You C’Mon is a bit of a beast, but each part works as a standalone album.
Every album has something that is brilliant on it, even if the whole album doesn’t stack up. Take “Thriller” for example. Good album, but nothing comes close to being as good as “Your Fucking Sunny Day” on it.
Really enjoying FLOTUS, but they’ve taken a really odd decision to vocoder Kurt Wagner’s voice on all of it. It’s a little bit off-putting, but the songs are still strong, with a couple of mammoth tracks clocking in at over 10 minutes, which is odd for them
