If the cello and french horn introduction to album opener "The Shining" don't give it away, one should be warned that Manchester, England's Damon Gough (aka Badly Drawn Boy) doesn't make conventional albums. His recordings and concert performances tend to be wildly erratic, filled with baroque pop overtures, tiny instrumental snippets on arcane instruments, humor, and-most importantly-some of the most beautiful folk-pop you'll ever hear. Though he's often compared to Beck, it's not really an accurate comparison. More than just great songs, Badly Drawn Boy, in the tradition of Randy Newman, the Beatles, and Harry Nilsson, writes great song cycles. Here, on the The Hour of Bewilderbeast, we trace a relationship gone sour through every pop sound imaginable. From the jazz piano of "Magic in the Air" to the funky "Once Around the Block," this and is filled with catchy hooks, charming lyricism, and Gough's considerable wit.
