Where it all begins
N. Clark | Sacramento, CA USA | 09/29/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Tindersticks (I) is a landmark debut. I fell in love with this album upon first listening. It's a 70 minute journey into late night drunken stories of loss, love and revenge.On first play, the vocals just sound like a mumbling and morose man drawing his last breath, but then you walk away and cannot stop thinking about that voice. Stuart Staples is probably one of the finest male vocalists since Scott Walker.And it's to Mr Walker's canon that the Tindersticks belong. Their songs are epics. Dense and complicated. Full of treasures to be unearthed with each listen. You can liken them to Nick Cave as well, although I feel they are vastly superior.One of the greatest debuts ever. Buy it."
Probably my favorite chamber pop debut album of all

"If you like any bands like Cousteau or mid 80's Tom Waits or anything at all like that you should own this record. Tindersticks simply do this music better than mostly anyone. The only people that may have ever topped them in this kind of sound would be their influences like Scott Walker and such, but they are simply the best at it by today's standards. As stated in a previous review, this album isn't for all times, but for late night listening it just doesn't get any better. They are probably the most important non-Britpop non-electronic british band of the 90's to be honest. Their body of work will probably hold up forever due to the great songwriting and this album simply has so much of that. The songs Patchwork and Blood are just two of the many amazing highlights on this record that are really worth hearing. Truly an essential listen."
Un "afterhours" indispensable

"Pocos grupos tienen un disco de presentacion tan impresionante. Tindesticks arma sus piezas con letras emotivas, donde abunda el desencanto y la desesperacion; con orquestaciones discretas y efectivas; con una voz casi monotonal (Stuart Staples) que recita, se obscurece y a veces canta, pero que se acopla de manera impecable a la musica y letra de las canciones; una banda que sin protagonismos individuales y muestras de virtuosismo innecesarias crea una atmosfera compleja y densa; y por ultimo lo que parece ser un organo Hammon desempolvado del cuarto de los triques, pero que todavia tiene mucho que decir. Sorprende que solo alcance 4 y media estrellas en Amazon y que no aparesca en "1001 Discos que hay que escuchar antes de morir", quizas porque seria musica apropiada para escuchar en el funeral. Indispensable!!!"
