While visiting Toronto I walked into an indy music store and this Baxter Dury CD was in rotation. The 2nd song on the CD, Oscar Brown caught me off guard with it's haunting and loose reference to the Velvet Undergrounds song 'O! sweet nuthin'. After listinging to first 3 tracks, the CD was already rated a MUST have. This is a decision I have not regreted.

The sound of the CD is haunting and beautiful, much like Portishead but still maintaining a very unique sound. Looking into the liner notes, the link between Baxter Dury and Portishead becomes clear. Geoff Barrow, and Adrian Utley accompany many of the tracks on this CD. Having also been involved in a 2002 release of Beth Gibbons solo project with Paul Webb (Talk Talk), you may see the Baxter Dury CD and the Gibbons Rustin' Man CD 'Out Of Season' displayed together.

I heard the single Oscar Brown and bought the CD the next day. If you are fans of Air or Modest Mouse you'll enjoy this. This is a cd where you can press play and listen all the way through without skipping tracks. Being the son of a musician he can hold his own anytime. Hopefully there will be more to come.

This album has a lot of appealing qualities: It's both introspective and arresting; a slowed-down, tripped-out soundscape. Baxter Dury croons with confidence, aided by some hauntingly lush female vocals on many of the tracks. It sounds like Portishead through an aural kaleidoscope. It's a distant, dreamy record, perfect for weekend mornings and quiet nights.

Over the span of my life i've encountered very few albums which i honestly thought were amazing. there's a lot of "good" or "really great" stuff out there, but "amazing" is hard word to get out of me when describing music -- maybe it's because i'm a musician myself, but this is a review of a cd, not an analysis of my self -- Len Parrot's Memorial Lift is truly an amazing album. I compare its majesty to Pink Floyd's Dark Side of The Moon and Radiohead's OK Computer. Every song is filled with wonder and the music is so delicate that every chord seems like it's hanging on its own fragile vine on a windy day. This album is good medicine.

This was playing in a second hand record store in Long Beach. 3 tracks in I asked for the copy. The Portishead connection makes a lot of sense now. Fans of the more mushroomy Flaming Lips, Grandaddy and Pink Floyd will feel very comfortable here too. Very ethereal but surprisingly dry production wise in some spots. Dury was very smart in allowing Johanna Hussey to coat this album in her dainty vocals. This is album will be with me forever. It's that strong.
