Product Description:

Personnel: Lloyd Cole (vocals, guitar, piano, programming); Dave Derby (vocals, steel guitar); Lullaby Baxter, Virginia Soledade (vocals); Neil Clark (electric guitar); Ray Mason (bass).
Recorded between 2002 & 2003.
In 2000, Lloyd Cole made an appealing return to form with THE NEGATIVES, and followed it up by fiddling around with electronic instrumentals, an odds-and-ends collection, and an off-the-cuff live album. Finally picking up where THE NEGATIVES left off, MUSIC IN A FOREIGN LANGUAGE is a similarly low-key album full of smart songwriting. Over the years, Cole's sound has shifted from jangly pop, dramatic orchestrations and folk-based rock and pop, but 20 years after his recorded debut, he's boiled his style down on the sparest album of his career.
Seldom accompanied by more than a couple of gently picked guitars and a muted keyboard, Cole delivers literate songs that strike the perfect balance between the verbosity of his early records and his more simplified '90s approach. Matching a sharp eye with a rabbit-quick wit, he has much in common here with Raymond Carver as he does with Morrissey. It also doesn't hurt that his singing voice has matured into its most expressive phase to date.
