Our Rating:
The prolific and ever dependable Stanley Brinks (once known as André Herman Dune) serves up another round of solid drinking songs designed to work even when the booze runs out.

The twelve charming sing along tunes here are more journeyman tales about the heart ruling the head and of being both lost and found. It's a solo album but he has his frequent muse Clemence Freschard by his side to contribute backing vocals.

The record is released on ruby red vinyl, proof that Brinks remains an incurable romantic and perpetual charmer. His unpretentious humour makes up for the corniness of his chat up lines (e.g."That shirt looks good on you").

He's a poet and he knows it. His deceptively simple writing style is infused with modest wisdom, deadpan wit and reveals his ear for quirky wordplay. On Good Day he rhymes quiver with river.

The lifestyle tips may be relatively thin on the ground but perhaps some consolation can be drawn from the recognition that after the tequila, rum and gin has gone, there will always be peanuts.
