I didn’t dislike Lloyd Cole and The Commotions but that whole 80s vibe sometimes turned me off a bit. However Lloyd Cole’s newest country-influenced solo album has been a bit of a revelation for me. Since I purchased it at the start of 2011 this record has been in heavy rotation, and is certainly not tiring.
It’s a very easy listen and Joan Wasser (aka Joan as Police Woman) providing backing vocals on some of the tracks is a nice addition. All in all a solid album with no weak links for me.
So do you give this a thumbs up, or perhaps prefer the 80s incarnation of Mr Cole?
