- Black Sheep by Julian Cope
10/10 Carpathian 18th September 2008For me, this is the best Cope release since maybe as far back as the mid 90's. After the previous ok but patchy "You Gotta Problem With Me" this one delivers and then some.
Stronger lyrics, better band dynamics, far more coherent melody...it's all back. Imagine a stronger Jehovahkill with some of Interpreters musical direction and you'll not be far off. On the downside it's another of Cope's "one album split over two discs seemingly for purely aesthetic reasons" which is attractive to look at but annoying to play.
Still, after 25+ albums that's not bad for the only real negative point. If you are, or have been, a Cope fan at any recent point then this is a buy you should be making without worry. The Drude is back in the zone.....
I'm a Julian Cope fan but believe me: It's his best record in years!!! Very very good.
