“ There is Ray Davies whimsical character study songs in which he depicted fictional personalities cast in situations of black humour. Davies characters were intrinsically English and always imaginary. Then there is Michael Stumm who takes a different approach as he writes about real people. With production credits for Scott Sherratt and actor Willem Dafoe The musicianship and song writing is of a very high standard and this is real heartfelt art. The country tinged backing band is complimentary to Stumms leathery drawl which is as compelling as it reminiscent of Lou Reeds manner and the more animated Bob Dylan vocal periods. That is part of the experience of this record yet it is not vital as the music speaks volumes itself. There is no standard subject songs here, its as off-centre a record as your likely to find. If you like your music a little different lyrically then this is for you. ”
