Product description

This album is unlike anything Geldof has done before. And its strangeness goes as deep as its greatness. Indeed, the two are conjoined. It is, at times a difficult album to listen to. But it rewards close and repeated listenings. There are layers. The whole thing has a dreamy (and sometimes phantasmagoric) quality that is at once contemporary and timeless. Many of the lines bring to mind strings of words that are with you early in the morning in a time when you are dealing with grief or tribulition--they don't quite make logical sense, but they make emotional sense. Geldof fearlessly puts this stuff out there for us. He rages, he ponders, he meditates, and, ultimately, he copes--before our very ears.
