Black Box Recorder - England Made Me mp3 album

The chorus of the song "Child Psychology" featured a highly controversial line: "Life is unfair, kill yourself or get over it". This led to the song being banned on UK radio and MTV. However, the sardonic nature of the song also gained praise from critics, with one calling it 'refreshingly blunt'.

Written-By – John Moore (3) (tracks: 1 to 7, 9 to 11), Luke Haines (tracks: 1 to 7, 9 to 11). Notes.

Album · 1998 · 12 Songs. See All. The Art of Driving - EP. 2000. The Facts of Life - EP. These Are the Things - Single.

England made me, and black box is a rather down-cast eyes version of sub culture soft goth. It carries overtones of meloncholy and twisted smiles. I personally love it, and will often have it playing in the background while I do various things around my home. There was really nothing quite like "England Made Me" when it appeared in 1999. that's been sweetened.

Such topics are seemingly impossible to weave into listenable pop music, but the songs that ts Luke Haines and John Moore write are cleanly stylized in a way that conceals the raw-nerved lives their characters exist in but are also reflective of the internalization of such relentless barrenness.
