I quite like it so far. I’ll have to be careful playing it when grandson is in the car though…

It’s not the Queen of Denmark is it? I want the Queen of Denmark again!

Not sure it’s coming back.
He seems to be moving into electro-troubadour territory.
Last release Grey Tickles … seemed to be a distillation of Queen Of Denmark and Pale Green Ghosts.
What I’ve heard so far is nice enough, but I’m not taken with it (yet?)

So do I Freddy – Everything since has been diminishing returns.

I like it a lot. Reading various interviews he’s always been an Electro Geek, this is closer to the stuff he really likes IMHO.

Just listening at the PC as I clicked on this. Grown on me massively since first play. Funnily enough, the FPO is joining me at Manchester Albert Hall in a couple of weeks to see JG and knows not of his work, so whilst idling in the den this afternoon, I played her first QOD, then the new one to show her how he’s, er, moved on. She preferred the new stuff, but could do without the c-bombs. GMF not yet sampled.

Oh, it’s just me then? To be fair, it grew on me slightly as it went on. More plays needed I guess.
But it’s not Q.O.D. Sniff.

It’s not Queen of Denmark, but I’m beginning to think it might be a very good second best.

Second play and it is slowly growing on me though not sure about the opening track at all. He likes his swear words too.
Got tickets for the Albert Hall show in February which will be the second time I’ve seen him…will need a better beard.

This guy is a great songwriter with a super voice. Saw him live twice in the word friendly QOD days. I just cant get past the electronica on this one.

I think he’s done very well in integrating what I saw as somewhat awkward electronica into his older style.
