Alfie - A Word in Your Ear (2002) Retail CD
From Twisted Nerve, the perfectly-formed Manchester label that brought us Badly Drawn Boy, comes A Word in Your Ear, the debut album from acoustic troubadours Alfie: a snug, cosy 10 tracks of fluffy folksy ramble that wouldn't say boo to the proverbial goose, but somehow, manages to blow all your preconceptions about winsome indie-pop out of the window. Ambling in on the heels of 2001's rather fine EP collection If You Happy with You Need Do Nothing, A Word in Your Ear is certainly no radical update of the Alfie agenda. But let your ears relax around the florid "Cloudy Lemonade" and the gentlymore… rapped "The Reverse Midas Touch", blending sleepy hip-hop shuffle into bluesy campfire strum, and you'll hear everything from the rural poetry of Nick Drake to the gutsy swagger of The Stone Roses standing proud at the heart of Alfie's design. Meanwhile, singer Lee Gordon's laconic drawl still sounds uncannily like Tim Burgess at three-quarters speed. A beautiful subtlety, a lack of bombast, and a knowledge that sometimes, less is more--for anyone awaiting the continuing adventures of Badly Drawn Boy with bated breath, A Word in Your Ear is a must-have. --Louis Pattison
