Sonic Grade: B (or better!)
Woodface easily meets the definition of a Desert Island Disc. I’ve played it hundreds of times and enjoy it more with each play, which insures that on my desert island I’ll never get sick of it.
To my way of thinking it contains some of the most original, melodic, hook-laden, sophisticated popular music recorded in the last twenty years.
Astonishingly (to me, anyway) it didn’t even chart here in the states, a sad commentary about the state of the music biz, a state that only seems to worsen as the decades roll on.
