What is this album?? The vocals are unbearable and annoying, the sound quality is dramatic, only the instrumental parts are not that bad, but when the extra effects like a giant wave of car horns (?) join in, it's just sad to hear. Good title though, I felt really distracted all the way through this record.

Tindersticks are an acquired taste, but a delicious one 🤤

Otro ejemplo de grupo venido a menos, aunque todavía siguen haciendo buenas canciones, pero ya los discos no son tan redondos como antes. Este en particular, tiene temas bastante aburridos.
Mejores canciones: A man needs a maid, You'll have to scream louder y The bough bends.

The first song is genuinely something special, but the remainder of the album never reaches those heights again.
