Fyfe Dangerfield is best known as the frontman of Mercury Prize-nominated, avant-garde pop four-piece Guillemots, and his debut solo album is less poppy than much of his main band's work. Classically trained from a young age, Dangerfield even worked briefly as a music teacher, and his technical ability is reflected in the large orchestral backing that often accompanies his music. Preceded by the single "She Needs Me."

I first heard the Guillemots when they were being showcased on a popular British airline at 30,000 ft above Washington DC on a sunny day. This album is like that - a joyous discovery of unique talent that has lyrics you just shake your head at, but they work. Where else would you hear "when you can't get past half past eleven without feeding the sharks on the shelf" and know that it fits perfectly with the feeling that it seeks to engender?
So go on - trust your instinct and buy it. If you can get the album with the bonus tracks then so much the better; his adaptation of 'She's Always a Woman' is a great tribute to a great singer. This is the album that has put the biggest smile on my face this year!
Music is all about personal taste and I respect all musicians for the hard work they do to provide us enjoyment and heart-enrichment and hope that Fyfe continues to grow and prosper as a musician.
My 18 year old son is a singer/songwriter so I am acutely aware of how tough it is in this biz and have so much appreciation for the many artists I listen to and support through purchasing their CD's. Keep buying the music you like and go to their gigs to enable your favorite artists to survive and produce more enjoyment for you!
