Review-What does a roué do when he is facing 40 and the old pick-me-ups of drugs and decadence aren't quite the ticket any more? He takes stock in the form of a solo album - his first - where he can brood to his heart's content. Regrets? He's got a few - that much is obvious from the downbeat tone, which first appears on Love Is Dead and persists through 10 similarly frayed ballads. There's a fair bit of self-indulgence here, but the former Suede leader has a way with these things, and the result is generally listenable. Accompanied mainly by strings and keyed-down guitar, Anderson's melancholy voice is the main attraction. These songs are salutary tales. On Dust and Rain, he sighs: "Your love's like an overdose, with your hands wrapped around my throat, using sex like an antidote to the pain." It may be textbook, hedonistic Anderson, but he sings it like he's lived it and is sick of it all.
