I like that Matt is going for high notes he really shouldn’t be on ‘This is the Night’ lol

There’s some impressive guitar work going on here....Sodium Light Baby.

While listening I’ve read this absolute blinder of a review from rym. This fella gave it half a star.

“This album is reviewed really well on this site. People tell you that Matt Johnson is in fine form here, a fantastic lyricist and you can change the world by listening to this release. Wank wank wank. None of them seem to have mentioned the fact that the music is poofter music, the lead singers voice is sooooo annoying and limp. Its like he has a clamp around his voicebox, it sounds like a stage whisper the whole time.”

There is a Boys II Men 4.5 rating too...



I mean he’s right in that ‘actually white MJ’ isn’t a natural singer and ‘act sings’ a lot...but then so many do. Bowie could hit the notes but was always very actorly delivering his vocals.



Jack Black however was born to sing

Is that woman whispering “fuck me hard” or am I mishearing it? Either way debauched.

Yeah, that part of the album he gets down to it...whether that’s a bona fide irl knee trembler or he’s stuck a bluey in the ‘93 VHS player is for us to ponder 🤔

Well I’ve listened to it in its entirety and in all honesty I’m actually impressed this time round. There’s a bit of Paddy Hanna in there. Highlights were Dogs and Bluer Than Midnight.
I’m definitely sticking with it.

Once you warm to Matt the ‘heavy on the emotion’ stuff like the closer and ‘Love is Stronger than Death’ should open up rather than sounds cheesy/insincere/unremarkable



Plus there’s an underlying atmosphere that comes out over time - sort of reaches its biggest impact on ‘Helpline Operator’ but is always there in the background



Anything above a Zak 3 out of 5 The The rating and I might weep with joy

Happy 30th birthday.



Remember buying this on cassette in Canterbury when it was released.



Still my favourite of theirs. Just love the atmosphere that runs through this.
