But alas, Blue Songs also has two slow, nearly beatless ballads. Blue Boy" is a cloying, pastoral bit on acoustic guitar. That style only sounds good if you can play acoustic guitar with a lot of technical skill.
Hercules & Love Affair - Blue Songs The "difficult second album" cliche may be the oldest in the music scribe's notebook, but following up Hercules and Love Affair must have been a daunting task. A similar theme ran through Hercules and Love Affair, but was overshadowed by the spectre of fresh defeats, raw wounds. With the misleadingly titled Blue Songs, Butler and friends have put this heartbreak behind them-never mind "I Will Survive," they have survived. The album is less bittersweet than its predecessor, and doesn't scale the same highs and lows, but if you borrow its rose-tinted glasses, you will see plenty of reasons to be cheerful.
