Momus says

This album is soft, sad and feminine. Although it may seem to reflect Momus’s move to Chelsea, his love of the Belgian desperation of Jacques Brel, don’t be fooled. This record should be bracketed with all the blue disks made by unhappy rockers’ girlfriends: Marianne Faithful, Joni Mitchell, Idha. Girls who, forced to live out the bohemian dream of The Road, can’t help showing ‘a little lace around the seams’.
