classic. he makes me sad and nostalgic in a way that I don't think any other singer consistently does.

The first cut is the deepest is a great song, could've been a motown single.

A letter from him was published in the Toronto Star the other day. Didn't read the piece that prompted it.

'Matthew & Son' is one of the most unheralded influences on British new wave, I think. The piano lick/chorus (lyrics aside) is something that Gary Numan could have come up with in the late '70s/early '80s. The middle-eight recalls the pre-chorus in Tears For Fears' 'Mad World'!

“Sitting” is such an odd song, it almost reaches the intensity of those John Cale songs where he loses his shit a couple minutes in. And yet he ends a bunch of lines with this vague, half-hearted “or so”/“or something.” Weird songwriting choice!
