I am not sure why it has taken me quite so long to get around to this album. I have had it since its UK release a couple of months ago but haven’t really gotten into it til these last couple of weeks. Maybe I had one of my fifty quid man moments and bought too many at the same time – always a bad move despite the brief enjoyment of scooping up a bundle of things at the same time. The trouble is they dont all get the time and attention they deserve and I suspect that Swoon suffered this ignominy.
