When I sent singer-songwriter Lloyd Cole $45 toward the recording of his new album, "Broken Record," I didn't think of the payoff. I was just investing in an artist who has meant a lot to me for 25 years and who is going it mostly alone in 2010. What I received in return was a beautifully produced deluxe box-set edition of the CD with a bonus disc of outtakes.... more >

If Cole were any more selfdeprecating, he’d punch himself in the face, so it’s a relief to hear him throw his weight about in the company of the impeccable, country-minded band assembled here.... more >

Lloyd Cole – Broken Record

One of the complications of getting older is how easy it is to get stuck in a rut, a perpetual cycle of ‘sameness’. It is a feeling that you can slip into without even really noticing until you suddenly realise that there is little in life from which you actually derive much pleasure. This seems to be something of which Lloyd Cole is acutely aware, as his career particularly over the last decade has seen him engage in a variety of styles and projects, including a brief spell back with the Commotions.
