Not as funny as it should be..

3 out of 5 stars

Very strong black comedy emphasis but perhaps not quite enough of the comedic stuff. Some partly entertaining horrifying stuff around the funeral business, death more generally and blindness but still doesn't quite deliver what it promises.

I also expect Meades to be much cleverer than this and more witty.

Stranger on the shore

5 out of 5 stars

Catching up on a few old classics. Thoroughly deserved reputation for existentialist masterpiece status.

Not terribly good for enhancing those cheerful family gatherings over festive period though!


5 out of 5 stars

I know this has been around for some years and that many others will have fruitlessly recommended it in the past but, having received as a Xmas gift, I am completely bowled over by the originality of this album. Simply can't believe I've not picked it up before. But it is absolutely brilliant and pre-figures some of the most interesting stuff of more recent years, esp Arcade Fire.

Just do it.
