KIRSTY MACCOLL – Fourth Album ‘TITANIC DAYS’ Came Out 25 Years Ago Today…

Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

5 October 2018


Album: TITANIC DAYS – Her 4th album

Released: 5 October 1993 – 25 years ago

PITCHFORK review: ” ‘Titanic Days’ is immanently memorable for its sense of humor and serious expectations. MacColl possessed a songwriting wit as sharp and as humorous as
Elvis Costello’s, but she was vulnerable and generous where he was often caustic, as if she
just couldn’t commit to being the curmudgeon – ‘Titanic Days’ manages to sound both
dreamily optimistic and realistically down-to-earth, measuring the distance between the
hoped-for life and the lived existence.
” – Score: 8.2 /10 – Full review here

TURN UP THE VOLUME: From poppy to jazzy and back. All gripping, mixed emotions
songs by a superb vox – Favorite tracks: Angel (Floating Round This House) / Bad /
Can’t Stop Killing You / Don’t Go Home
