Without Griffin—and apparently a few meddling Gods—to push me along, I'd still be telling fortunes at the circus, lying about my past, ignoring my future, and living as far away from my tyrant mother as humanly possible. True understanding thuds into place. Hope isn't just an abstract concept; it's me. Flesh and blood me.

Matador Backed by starry session musicians, Mike Hadreas makes wild but confident leaps between styles on this rich, fascinating LP. It looks not unlike something Athena might have sold posters of in the mids, destined for teenage bedroom walls: a moody black and white shot of a man in jeans, stripped to the waist, the better to show off his ripped physique, his body smeared with what looks like engine oil. The plot thickens when you examine the credits, which come heavy with familiar names. And nor do straightforward grabs for mainstream stardom sound like Set My Heart on Fire Immediately, at least if you cleave to the depressing current thinking about the commercial benefit of making an album where every song sounds similar enough to merge into one, with nothing to startle the streaming listener, lest they switch to something else. Quite the opposite. For an artist frequently characterised by his miserable backstory of bullying, addiction and chronic illness and his lyrical empathy for human failure and frailty, it feels astonishingly assured and confident in its approach, which perhaps explains the cover image and supporting cast: an expression of power and focus, like the album itself.
