You have to be really self-confident to release a 22-song album that lasts almost an hour and a half. Fortunately, this is about Tim Burgess, who did just that, delighting his many fans.
A cult musician, The Charlatans frontman, writer and one of the most popular users on Twitter has already made quite a few solo releases in the 2000s. However, none of them has yet been such a monster (in a good sense) as Typical Music.
On his new record, Tim decided not to disregard any new musical idea, carefully working through and completing each track. And because he has a true talent for writing near-perfect pop songs, what we end up with here is a truly gigantic record full of hits.
It doesn’t make much sense to parse Typical Music into singles or individual tracks, it’s a real adventure that you can enjoy by going through it completely – from beginning to end. The perfect treat for all existing fans, and also a great way to get to know the amazing musician for the first time.
