When Steven Patrick’s fourth album was released in 1994, it felt like his most well-rounded and mature work. The intervening years haven’t called for any revision of that assessment. While it might have less bite than the Mick Ronson-produced Your Arsenal, the sound is warm and epic. Guitarists Boz Boorer and Alain Whyte work as solid and inventive co-writers to the master of his domain, who at this point is still expressing relatable emotions amid the bitterness. The album spawned three superior singles, The More You Ignore Me the Closer I Get, Hold On to Your Friends and Now My Heart is Full.
If this isn’t one of your top three non-comp solo Moz albums, you thought List of the Lost was a cracking read.
On CD with a bonus live disc, or heavyweight vinyl.
