One of the most underrated debut albums ever. How many other songwriters make such a mature and fully formed record like this first time round . There's hints of Randy Newman and Tom Waits here, but it's mostly unique to Wainwright himself. Foolish love, is a stunning opener, and it's the first of many great songs. Matinee idol, beauty mark, baby, and, Sally Ann, are all stunning, as are, Barcelona, April fools, and, in my arms. The only weak track is probably, damned ladies, but it's still ok. A great debut from a career destined for greatness.
