  • Sounding more like his old man with every passing year, Baxter Dury also sounds more confident than ever on Prince of Tears, his fifth album. Picking up where he left off on 2014's It's a Pleasure, Dury populates Prince of Tears with a rocky, Euro-disco, tongue-in-cheek allusion to his father's peak, which also provides useful support for his song-poems. Each of Dury's songs are deliberately shorn of excess -- there are no more hooks than necessary, no more beats than needed, the hooks are streamlined and slim -- which draws attention to the economy of his words and his wry delivery. All of this is familiar, so what counts on Prince of Tears is execution, and from top to bottom, it's one of his strongest albums, benefitting from his assurance and lack of nonsense. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Professional Reviews
NME (Magazine) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The 10 tracks disappear in a brisk 28 minutes, as if to say, `Chin up, mate, get on with it'. A heartbreak record -- done the British way."

Clash (Magazine) - "The addition of a 'Histoire de Melody Nelson'-style string section to his already sinister yet charming sound completes Baxter's metamorphoses into 'English Serge'."
