Performer Notes
  • Tindersticks includes: Stuart Staples, Dickon.
  • Recorded at Conny's Studio, Cologne, Germany; Abbey Road and Orinoco, London, England from May 9 to July 10, 1994.
  • German remastered edition features a bonus CD.
  • A string of adjectives come to mind when trying to describe the music of the Tindersticks: romantic, ironic, moody, lush and cinematic, among them. There is a touch of camp to the dark, graceful beauty of these songs, as shimmering waves of vibes, chiming guitars, funeral parlor organ, bold horn arrangements and rich, lilting strings create a surreal, late-night lounge atmosphere. The band employs equal doses of the Velvet Underground, late-period Roxy Music and movie soundtrack textures, while vocalist Stuart Staples affects a smooth, lugubrious Scott Walker-esque croon honed to a dramatic mumble, giving the ensemble a distinctive sound.
  • The band's second album lives up to the expectations generated by their dazzling debut. There is less of a rock element here. The hushed, spooky ambience conjured by tracks such as "A Night In," "No More Affairs," and "Cherry Blossoms," with its ghostly, double-tracked vocals, stakes out new, evocative territory for the band, heightened by Staples beautiful, though often indecipherable baritone murmur. The influence of film music is felt in the almost Ennio Morricone-esque "Vertrauen II" and "Snowy In F# Minor," while the band's subtle, sly sense of humor is evident on tracks like the tongue-in-cheek swing of "My Sister." This is a mightily impressive follow-up disc by one of the more creative and stylish pop acts of the '90s.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (10/19/95, p.150) - 3 Stars - Good - "...Their music is frequently as beautiful as it is brooding, and in the space between lies its enigmatic, enduring appeal..."

Entertainment Weekly (8/25-9/1/95, p.112) - "...Lead singer Stuart Staples utters poetic proclamations in a slo-mo basso profundo, while the eclectic music--funereal organs, skittish strings blaring horns--creates alluring atmospheres of grief, isolation, and desire." - Rating: A-

Option (7-8/95, p.140) - "...Somewhere out on the Western plain is a sacred place where Nick Cave, the Righteous Brothers, J.J. Cale and the ghost of Jim Morrison conjured up Tindersticks....Simultaneously spare and lush (yes, there's a string section), the songs crawl forward at a suspensful pace; where most rock is all momentum and release..."

Melody Maker (12/23-30/95, pp.66-67) - Ranked #5 on Melody Maker's list of 1995's `Albums Of The Year' - "...some wondrously wise and weary songs..."

NME (Magazine) (12/23-30/95, pp.22-23) - Ranked #13 in NME's `Top 50 Albums Of The Year' for 1995 - "...they're the croaking phantoms of the opera--more beautiful, subtle and stylishly miserable than ever."
