King Creosote (4 stars)

King Creosote

Bombshell (679)


His prodigious output thas been celebrated no end in the past but Kenny Anderson has now been ingested into the musical machine in earnest now but has lost none of his wayward spirit. Sure, this could be argued as his most conventional album yet, a full band backing again but there’s even moments that go so far as to ‘rock’ when left unattended.

What continues to shine through however is his special way with words, his lyricism takes peculiar turns but never sounds clever-clever. Similarly, his wistful melodies feel a little bit awkward initially when bolstered by such rambunctious backing but this only highlights the versatility of his songs. Yet another victory for the King.
