We gave it an A-

More than a few first- or second-time listeners will find themselves exasperated by the sheer length (21 tracks) of the Nottingham, England, sextet Tindersticks‘ eponymous debut. Add in the morose murmurings of vocalist Stuart Staples, and the music can be daunting. Stick with it, though; the white-knuckled confessional dirges achieve a haunting beauty that, in less capable hands, could have lapsed into mere ambient torpor. B
