Sinatra Sings For Only The Lonely
Released: Jan 1958
Label: Capitol Records
Sinatra's darkest album, this uses heartbreak as a springboard to examine the kind of urban isolation that only happens in a crowd. Nelson Riddle's peerless charts are as breathtakingly perfect as Sinatra's singing on a set that makes Goth Rock sound like kiddy pop. This contains the noir barroom wrist-slashers "Angel Eyes" and "One For My Baby."
