  • Richard Hawley may have been best known as a guitarist for the likes of Beth Orton, Pulp, and others, but his first solo album LATE NIGHT FINAL firmly establishes his identity as a compelling singer/songwriter. Much of the album is occupied by dark, moody, late-night tracks where Hawley's Scott Walker-meets-Tindersticks voice hangs languorously over spare but elegant arrangements. Despite his downcast cabaret tendencies, though, Hawley is a popster at heart, and a number of songs here could very conceivably have been recorded 30 years ago by the likes of Harry Nilsson or Glen Campbell in that golden age of US pop radio. Hawley's songs are unburdened by overworked metaphor, instead relying on simple, evocative images to paint pictures of loss, despondency, and the occasional romantic ray of hope shining through the dimness.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (2/15/02, p.68) - "...It's perfect feel-good feel-bad music..." - Rating: A-

Uncut (12/01, p.104) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...It's a full-bodied, smoke-saturated treat: Hawley has the phrasing and demeanour of a cabaret crooner, but none of the kitsch..."

Alternative Press (3/02, p.82) - 7 out of 10 - "...Classy and timeless pop music. This haunting collection of elegant tunes bodes well for Hawley's future as a solo artist..."
