More MOR heaven for anyone out there who needs to
fill up their wishlist in time for Christmas.
Embrace had a new album out earlier this year. Full
of mope-rock piano ballads, it was the usual heartfelt
goop for potential Westlife fans who by a sad accident
of birth had been born male. Just in case you missed
it and have exhausted the Coldplay section of
the local HMV, I Can't Come Down is here to save the
day, nudging you back in the direction of music that
should make you want to slit your wrists just in time
for the Christmas rush.
Look, here's a bit of advice: if you like this, you
don't really like music. You like candlelit suppers
and washing the car at the weekend in between trips to
B&Q. It's all very nice that you like to take the
missus out for night at Wembley Arena once a year for
her birthday but be honest - you'd both rather be at
an Andrew Lloyd Webber, wouldn't you?
