(5 out of 5 stars)

""He Never Mentioned Love" is one of her wittiest and brightest, "Halloween" is one of her most wistful, and "Walking Down Madison" is one of her gutsiest and toughest. All said, "Electric Landlady" packs an emotional punch that keeps me coming back for more. It's got better material than "Kite" and it's not as scattershot as "Galore"(hits package)and I just love her deep, solemn voice and that hushed, prophetic way she has of expressing unrequited love. God bless Kirsty..."
My 1st ever CD!

(4 out of 5 stars)

"I remember this one quite well, because over twelve years ago, it (along with The Pursuit of Happiness' 2nd LP) was the first CD I ever bought. Will at Walrus Music told me it was much more experimental than her first album "Kite", but I loved her voice and bought it anyway.

I was pleasantly surprised. Though it's loaded with a lot of 'hired guns' (The Pogues, Johnny Marr), the mix of styles doesn't sound jarring in the slightest (although the opener, "Walking Down Madison" is a bit dated at this point). Track 3, "Children Of The Revolution" is one of the best non-Smiths collaborations Johnny Marr's ever put his talents to, and track 6, "Lying Down" is a subtle little groove that's infectious as all get out.

As her ex-husband Steve Lillywhite was behind the production, this album has way too much going for it to be any less than four stars, but I generally save five star affairs for 'perfect' records. This one's closer than most."
