More gems from Kelly

"Australian singer-songwriter Paul Kelly sets high standards for himself but lives right up to them on Comedy.He has written 15 of the 18 songs on this double album and most of them are gems. "Don't Start Me Talking" is as good as any other of Kelly's hits. "Stories Of Me", "Wintercoat", Brighter", I Won't Be Your Dog Anymore", "I Can't Believe We Were Married" and the inspiring "From Little Things Big Things Grow" are just some of the tracks that show off Kelly's lyric talent.Even Messenger Steve Connolly's "Leaving Her For The Last Time" stands up well in very good company.Like all good storytellers, Kelly keeps his tales relatively clear and simple.There is more than an hour of music on Comedy, but it goes very quickly."
