(2-LP set) A thrilling debut for one of the most original British bands of the '90s. A romantic and elegant chamber pop masterpiece that mixes indie rock forms, the maverick pop song craft of a Lee Hazlewood and/or Van Dyke Parks, and the dark charm and hip romanticism of Ian Curtis, Scott Walker, and Leonard Cohen.
While in the UK it was named album of the year (1993) by Melody Maker, in the USA Rolling Stone wrote: "the 1st
Tindersticks album draws inspiration from the playful narrative style of producer Lee Hazlewood, the Cinemascope orchestrations of John Barry and the twilight-zone claustrophobia of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds." 180 gram vinyl in a gatefold sleeve.
