I went for Bomb I just canít see much to recommend R&H apart from Heartland. Bomb has 3 good tunes, Vertigo, a man and a man and Sometimes. The rest of it is abysmal as is the cover

AIWIY - great until the horrible string section
VDL - cod Johnny cash
HM - awful
Desire - itís ok but ultimately vacuous
AOH - itís ok but ultimately vacuous

On the other hand...

Vertigo - itís vacuous but at least it rocks
A man and a man - there are some lovely simple truths in there
Sometimes - itís about his dad and actually a rare moment of sincerity from the short guy

You, obviously, have never been loved. Or else you would love Hawkmoon.  ;)
