BAX­TER DURY

Prince of Tears (Heav­enly)

Irish Independent - Weekend Review - - FRONT PAGE -

Five al­bums into his ca­reer and Bax­ter Dury can truly be­gin to feel that he has emerged from the shadow of his late fa­ther, Ian. His lat­est is his best yet — a 10-track ef­fort weigh­ing in just shy of half an hour and boast­ing one cap­ti­vat­ing song-vi­gnette af­ter the next. He cre­ates some re­mark­able char­ac­ters — in­clud­ing the odi­ous nar­ra­tor in ‘Mi­ami’ — and he’s de­liv­ered some top tunes, in­clud­ing ‘Oi’, which wouldn’t have been out of place in his dad’s back cat­a­logue.
