The debut album from the enigmatic The Blue Nile received tremendous reviews, yet barely scraped the chart. The promise was there, and it took shape on the second album Hats. Paul Buchanan's pleading voice is made for late-night listening in a cosy bedsitting room. Mulling over love lost, love found, happy times, sad times and kitchen sinks (I lied about the last bit, but you get the picture), a beautiful landscape of evocative music soaks in rather than hitting you first time. The Blue Nile can be played over and over again, which is why they have only felt the need to put out three records in 15 years. ??
