1993 all over again: 7 - Tindersticks

7. Tindersticks - Marbles

Over at the Melody Maker, they were crowning Tindersticks as the album of the year. It came 13th in the NME list; they went for Bjork's Debut instead. That difference alone suggests that maybe IPC closed down the wrong title, doesn't it?

You've got to admit, this is a wonderful lyric:

You saw your life as a series of complicated dance steps
Impossible to learn, they had to come naturally
Together you squirmed and wriggled
And I could only jerk along behind
