"If you like Bruce Springsteen's first couple album, Hothouse Flowers,Del Amitri, and stuff like Whole Of The moon by Waterboys-this is most definitely for u.I bought this cd for .99 cents. I had heard Heaven Help The Lonely,and knew it was brilliant.That was one of the weaker songs come to find out.This guy has incredible lyrics.IE-"I watched you as your childhood left,and your gentleman came.As the visitors roomed in the halls of desire.Where the waterfalls burned on the blankets of fire" To write so eloquent about his old girlfriend in a whorehouse is a triumph.You will have to find this on ebay, but it's worth the search.The best songs are Renegades,Places I have never been, that's enough,yesterdays dreams,heaven help, and dont die. Why this sold so poorly is the same explanation of why Whole Of The Moon by the Waterboys was not huge-the greatest stuff goes ignored in exchange of Jerry Springer-fan type music."
