crybaby - crybaby

crybaby aka danny coughlan's debut album is a wonderful trip through the sounds of the 60s, mixed with lots and lots of melancholia and a world full of love and pain. coughlan's voice is it what makes this album different from other artists of that genre. at parts he sounds like morrissey.... and maybe that's the reason why i love this album. it's not that i like listening to a morrissey copy, but coughlan's voice works so perfectly well with the sounds he creates. as good as the album is.... a bit less melancholia and bittersweetness would make this album a masterpiece. i sometimes feel like i was biting on the same candy bar again and again, after listening to "crybaby". nevertheless... it's for sure one of the better debuts in (early) 2012.
