Beautiful South Lyrical Classic They say I drink too much, to me, well that's just profound, how do you know you can't swim, until you have drowned". That’s because the most infuriating thing about Quench is that it is halfway to being a classic Beautiful South album, and therefore pretty much by default close to being a classic pop album (make no mistake about it, at their best these guys make pop music that is pretty much as good as it gets).

As usual, Paul Heaton and his comrades take a jaundiced look at the world while crooning melodically over pop, rock, and cocktail jazz tracks.
How bad is for the health of music to watch a distinct pop band, sinking in the sea of mediocrity, while their pen still remains sharp and idiosyncratic.
