Product Description

Badly Drawn Boy returns with his 5th studio album, 'Born In The UK'. Whittling down nigh on 30 tracks to just 13 wasn't the easiest process, but his first album in 2 years is also his best to date.

The first track to be heard from the album was the title track which was released on a VERY limited edition 7". The song itself is 160-seconds of rollicking rock'n'roll which details the events that have shaped his life since 1969. BDB-watchers will note the reference to Gough's hero Bruce Springsteen.

The first proper single from the album is one of the best songs Damon's ever written - 'Nothing's Gonna Change Your Mind', which is co-produced by Nick Franglen, one half of animated sampledelic organo-dance maestros Lemon Jelly. The song is a swelling, intricate, ballad that he feels is "tinged with Seventies-ness, with Bacharach-ness. I can imagine Pan's People dancing to it. It's part Bond theme too. That’s my experience of being a kid in the Seventies".

デーモンにしか作れないポップ・アルバム。ABOUT A BOY以来では一番好きだけど、なんかボーカルがこもってる感じ。もっと生っぽくても良いのに。でも1stに近い感じがある。
