Catatonia - Equally Cursed and Blessed (1999) Retail CD
If International Velvet was Catatonia exploding into the public sights, Equally Cursed And Blessed is the sound of a band realising what's happened, and as such it is a much more personal album. Opening track "Dead From The Waist Down" is the view of America from a tour bus window, while "Bulimic Beats" is glassily fragile and backs Cerys' voice with a harp. Not that it lacks humour, even given the subject matter; The line "A front line with labels where I witness custard's last stand" shows a continued and healthy approach to taking the piss. In other places, Catatonia stomp in wittilymore… as they always have, particularly with "Londinium" ("I come alive outside the M25") and the wonderful, Clash-tinged "Storm The Palace", an anti-Royalist song suggesting what we can do with the Queen and her house ("Turn it into a bar, let them work in Spar"). Plus, on "She's A Millionaire", Cerys has the best pronunciation of the word gynaecology ever put to record. --Emma Johnston
