ALBUM OF THE WEEK - Music Diet week 31
Perfume Genius - Too Bright
This is such a departure from his second album, ‘Put Your Back N 2 It’. It feels as if he had to take his time to test the waters, and is finally ready to bring out the big guns. His confidence in his own craft has clearly taken flight, which is evident in his spine-chilling voice and brash but finely tuned arrangements and instrumentals. The songs are threaded together gently by the ever so achingly honest and brutal lyrics. It is hard to choose highlights on ‘Too Bright’, as for once, this is one of those old-fashioned albums, as consistent as they come.
