Ringhio: like me you're clearly a Vauxhall and I fan. Lifeguard is a fantastic song. Beethoven is getting some good nods here. I thought it was probably inessential, but maybe not! Intersing opinion on the last two. I found Quarry to be a real grower, rate it highly. ROTT I loved from the off, but ...

The "spy movie" guitar riffs.
Excellent fast opener both for an album and a gig.

All. Particularly: the piano intro with the "ooooh", and when guitar and drums stop and a warm and heartfelt voice goes: "Darkness would become me underneath the table As the fury raged around the house Your despairing tread was angry and unstable...". Next: Crimes Of Paris .

Oh my.

I remember that in 1998 (or was it '99) Elvis appeared in an italian musical program to promote Painted From Memory. Carmen Consoli played before him, and he commented that "her voice was beautiful".
And a new love bloomed.

I can't stand her.

Interesting list, Ringhio - you don't rate anything very much up there from his early period (MAIT to Imperial Bedroom), or anything from All This Useless Beauty, WIWC or The Delivery Man. Not a criticism, just an observation. The fact is that I don't like the early albums very much. I found many s...
