Soul Is a Lonely Lightbulb
"A lonely silhouette smoking a cigarette hoping for the phone to ring though she’s sick of the sound of people's mouths winding her up and putting her down". Nakedself is loaded with a lot of baritone guitars and odd sonic distortions and this makes the album sound strangely industrial. Excruciating vocals and psychedelic angst in lyrics add to its midnight melancholic mood. "Can’t love or be loved, can’t touch or be touched and he’s lonely. Another drink, another girl, another life in another world – he’s a phony." Nakedself stands aside from all the other The The albums and it is one of my favourites by the band.
