wonderdog This album is a minor triumph. First listen, I was thinking: "oh this track sounds like X, this track sounds like Y, and so on" but in reality, the whole album sounds uniquely like Al Libby. I honestly couldn't take it off repeat for ages.

Alex Morris What a smashing album by Al. Fave track 'Wear My Displeasure' reminds me of the sunshiny goodness of XTC's Grass, but there's oodles of of fruitful mellowness to be found elsewhere on the album, too. Highly recommended. Favorite track: Wear My Displeasure.

Track Name: Ice For Slights
Steal away
Save a day
Night is yours
Face all flaws

Drop that flair
Once debonair
All it ever did
Kept terror hid

Wrap-over high
Quivers in the sky

It's not a loss just a change
A pate, once a plot, now a range

Wake up new
Staid on cue
Ice for slights
Grins for rights

Drop that flair
Once debonair
All it ever did
Kept terror hid

Wrap-over high
Quivers in the sky

It's not a loss just a change
A pate, once a plot, now a range
Track Name: Ever Blonder
If i raise it in the morning
If i raise it in the day
There's a chance that it's a warning
Dangers come to play

Well my mind it starts to wander
Shoeless into pain
Where the view is ever blonder
Guarded and urbane

Stand tall, stone wall
Stand tall, stone wall

When these feelings start to claw me
And there's nothing left to say
I'll communicate poorly
As there's nothing left to say

Stand tall, stone wall
Stand tall, stone wall
Track Name: Longer Than It's Gone
A smile, you cant put your finger on
Held, longer than it's gone
No, you wont stop me today
From passing, on my way

Glide by a dead cause
Ride high with closed jaws

Wish i was stronger in the light
To keep evening plans water tight
Some can force you too confess
Thoughts that really are a guess

Glide by a dead cause
Ride high with closed jaws
Track Name: Never Been Shy
D.U.I
Never been shy
Oh I like a drink
Up here on the brink

Crouching in the rain
Everyone's the same
Why did I run
Didn't have a gun

You don't know the half of what I've done
You don't know the half of what I've sung

I'm no paranoid
Just so we avoid
Lazy forms filled
Characters milled

You don't know the half of what I've done
You don't know the half of what I've sung
Track Name: Unaired Batter
A bark of yellow
They find it mellow
Leaves me flatter
Unaired batter

Raise my fears
Graze my peers

I'm too scared to
Share my breakthrough
I'm too scared to
Share my breakthrough

Wednesday morning
Not so fawning
Peel my fruit back
That's an eye-snack

I'm too scared too
Share my breakthrough
I'm too scared too
Share my breakthrough
Track Name: Wear My Displeasure
I tried to reach you but all I got was a tone
Convalescing, looking for skills to hone
Rabid competer's, snapping at my calves
Don't they see that I only do things by halves

Lay where i left you......

Long long a liar, I don't see the truth
Been been that always, salving since my youth
This has no answer so i wont look too long
Wear my displeasure like a new sarong

Lay where i left you.......

I gather your sleeping, I gather up my wares
Cradle the paper just so there's no small tears

Lay where i left you....
Track Name: Simpleton Ahoy
Bald man coming
Leather little boy
Bald man coming
Simpleton ahoy

He looked me in the eyeball
Thought he found a bin
He looked me in the eyeball
thought he found a win

He said "Do me a favour
And shut the fuck up,
Do me a favour and shut the fuck up"

There's places for those ones
Deep in the ground
There's places for those ones
They wont make a sound

I wont let it
Keep me indoors
I wont let it
Make new sores

I said "Do me a favour
And drink yourself cold,
Do me a favour and drink yourself cold"
Track Name: Canals of Wax
He's an empty house
Detached
An empty house
Matched

The doors don't swing
Much
The bells don't ring
Much

Bales of snow he stacks
High
Canals of wax
Sigh

Viscous mood attracts
Jeers
The more he reacts
Jeers

Snaggle truth he spits (repeat)
