Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2002-10-29
Founding member of the Birthday Party, collaborator of Nick Cave, Anita Lane sect presents another masterpiece of cinematic heavily produced funky cool dark spy feel compositions. Not pretentious just cool and self-aware. He’s been doing a lot of soundtrack work in the last decade and it shows- everything is replete with drama and epic qualities. This is the shit. BA=Bad ass! Shaft, Barry White, mean dope ass.

1) dramatic, funky as hell w/ near hip hop voc delivery epic heavy arrangements, aptly titled, amazing
2) funky driving electro feel, cool guit lead
3) sexy sexual feel, cool guit lead
4) sultry simmering funky supercool noisy treated ending
5) smarmy space age cool jazz, bluesy piano, discordant feel, brushed snare type beat, instrumental
6) downtempo., classic dark menacing BA
7) dark waltzing cool jazz, w/ vibes, cool noises instead of vocals, long
8) swingy pop w/ lyrics/vocs in front, slick
9) dynamite jungle electro beat and feel w/ killer western guit melodies, cookin instrumental
10) lilting duet w/ fem vocalist, airy pretty pop, epic mellow, smacks of classic 70’s song I cant peg
