Ballad of the Broken Seas

I bought Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan's Ballad Of The Broken Seas. Campbell has the sweetest voice I ever heard, although the whole thing is very un-B&S-like, as I had kind of hoped. After a few listens, I so far like '(Do you wanna) come walk with me' and 'It's hard to kill a bad thing'. This music will keep me going today whilst drowning in lesson planning and fretting about the week ahead ;(

I tried to post something yesterday but it hasn't shown up. I said how jealous I am that you'll see Belle and Sebastian, and that you should go to see A Cock And Bull Story despite what I said.

I bought this record yesterday too. I haven't decided what I think of it yet.

I think I also like 'Honey Child What Can I Do?'

What do you reckon, R?

I really like Kathryn Williams, by the way.

Actually I decided that I don't like it at all and took it back! I swapped it for an enormous book about physics.

How can a book about physics possibly be better than that CD?

Good for my career. The more theoretical physics I get the better. Sad fact. Plus, it might be interesting on its own.

This album is so good. Yes, very un-B&S. I was never very good at physics - I'll stick to the music.
