Format:Audio CD
I am simply flabbergasted that there are only four previous reviews of this incredible album. I'm just as amazed that anyone could give this less than the highest rating. This truly is one of the best albums I've heard in a long time. Since listening it to it for the first time I've probably played it from beginning to end at least 25 or 30 times, having a copy at home, a copy I burned to have at work for my workplace DVD player, and having it on my iPod. On more than one occasion I've listened to it at home on my home stereo, listened to it again on the EL to work, and then played it two or three times at work.

Even if you are an avid fan of music, there are always going to be some good ones that you miss. I've long been a serious fan of rock music, especially indie, alternative, and garage rock, but having a limited pocketbook, a myriad of other interests competing for time that would otherwise be spent listening to music, and never listening to the radio (except for NPR, not a great source of rock music) has meant that while by and large I'm knowledgeable about what's going on in the rock world, the occasional disc slips through that shouldn't have. I'm almost embarrassed-heck, I AM embarrassed-to admit that I've only recently learned about this album. How in name of Pete Townshend did I miss this one? This isn't merely a good album, it is a great one. To think that I've gone over a decade without having heard it is a tad humbling. It also makes me wonder what else I've missed.

What most gets me about having missed this album ere now is how stunningly good I found it even on a first listen. The Auteurs remind me of a lot of other bands like the Kinks, the Smiths, Suede, and even George Harrison.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lost gem November 4, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Landmark album by one of the most original and uncompromising artists of the past 50 years. The self-declared genius behind this group is of course Luke Haines, and, as will aready be obvious, I agree with his declaration. I like his worst music and love his best. This album from 1993 and the first in the Auteurs series contains some of his very best. Tracks like Showgirl, How can I be wrong and Starstruck are standouts. Showgirl gets to a point where you don't think anything could get any better - but then it does just that during the guitar solo which makes up the last 30 seconds. He's been likened to the Kinks and Bowie, but, while the influence may be there, he does not sound like them; he sounds like Luke Haines, and, if there is any justice, which there is not of course, he'll eventually be remembered as just as important.

If you already knew this was a great album and would like it made more widely available in the USA, then please MARK THIS REVIEW "HELPFUL".

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Sinister Pop Album April 2, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
What Luke Haines and the Auteurs acomplished here was an erudite, melodic, largely acoustic set of songs that perfectly capsulated the early brit pop scene in a way to which only the Auteurs could. This album is fairly perfect and is a wonderful treasure of simple, yet wonderful songs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Anything with Lenny Bruce on the cover can't be bad March 17, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Great pop record, not quite as refined as later Auteurs releases, but a good record nevertheless.
Highly recommended if you already own the other two full length CDs.
