It is possible the deaths of Elliott Smith and Joe Strummer (this is dedicated to both) have had a profound influence on Damon Gough (AKA Badly Drawn Boy). There’s been a seismic shift in his songwriting. Gone are his tendencies to over-indulge in clever arrangements and melodic twists. Instead he’s found the power that a subtle gesture can have on the final product, releasing his most tender and honest record to date. Perhaps he’s finally started to realize his potential as a great songwriter.
