Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2008-05-09The Beautiful Lie' the 5th album from British pianist songwriter, Ed Harcourt is an uneven mix of wonderful and overdramatic. Combining dark lyrics and the song structures of Thom Yorke or Jeff Buckley there is rough magic here. “You only call me when you’re Drunk” is a great song until it slips the slope of too much drama both lyrically and musically. That said I think there is some outstanding music here (I loved 1,2,4,7,11) and I know on other days other songs would appeal more. Try it and you’ll find something brilliant to play and enjoy. - Anne Lamont
