The mastery on display here is that the mix comes out as sublime as it does. Even as James Graham sings, once again, about loss and loneliness, it’s expertly paired with a hypnotic or compelling mix. A sommelier of emotions, if you will.

“There’s a Girl in the Corner” sits comfortably between The Stills (“Gender Bombs”) and Radiohead (“All I Need”) as the album’s opening track, and sets the tone as Graham realizes, “She’s not coming back for me.” On the very next song, Graham sings, “This isn’t you that I came here for” on the driving highlight, “Last January.” He is despair’s courier and beneficiary both, and it’s become a consistent mantle for rock music’s saddest band.
