Approachable enough, but pretty unremarkable on first listen. Apparently this album is about the lyrics, but the music didn't compel me to actually listen to them.

Musically the material is weak, lyrically it's great.

Great poetry! Such a drag Lloyd Cole didn't released anything as good as this ever after.
