It's a mysterious world, we lose one Elvis and are immediately provided with a replacement. A whole bunch of great songs, all different, all interesting, each one a gem. A pleasure to hear someone who needs to write songs, not forced to by a record company contract. You can feel the vitality in the music — this bloke enjoys himself. Listen to the lyrics and you realise many of the songs were born of a lot of suffering — "I felt so happy I could die, she said drop dead and left with another guy." But don't let that bother you cos he's obviously having a good time now. The best songs are "Less than Zero" (obviously) "Alison," "Red Shoes" and "I'm not angry." Buy at least one.
