but if I had to pick an album, probably Red Apple Falls
the arrangements and production are spot on
Doctor Came At Dawn and Dongs Of Sevotion are both worth adding to the other albums mentioned by other posters.
Funny you post this now. Just wondered into the new Beerwolf Books pub in Falmouth, they were playing Rococo Zephyr, as wonderful as that pub is, I soon went home just to listen to that album again. Absolutely perfect songwriting.
Don't tell people about the pub, it's already getting too busy.
Dongs of sevotion though , right?
a lot of it is well boring.
all of these are miles better:
knock knock, supper, ran on lens, dongs of sevotion, red apple falls, woke on a whaleheart, julius caesar.
Surely the right answer is 'a river...'. Pretty much all stuff released as smog > that released as bill.
all I'm sure of is this one is his best start to finish. though it's probably more the case that it flows in a way that better fits the way I like to sink into his headier songs.
like, certain songs buckle me at the knees ('Strayed', 'Distance', 'Red Apple Falls', 'All Your Woman Things') and I just can't get up again to get in the mood for the others.
oh god, that song...it's like blacking out a bit.
