The Impossible Bird by Nick Lowe
Released: Dec 1994
Label: Yep Roc Records
Nick Lowe's ability for crafting diamond-cut pop melodies was established decades ago and yet The Impossible Bird is a brilliant departure. The song craft is still there in spades -- the gentle "The Beast In Me" or driving "I Live On A Battlefield" being particular highlights -- but the attitude is remade. Here, Lowe has weathered the storm of mid-career crisis and emerged impeccably -- legs crossed at the knee in tailored slacks, smelling delicately of polished leather and hand-rolled Cubans. The best advice for Lowe's second coming? Fathers, mind your daughters.
