7digital What we said: In the pantheon of fantastic opening couplets, “I did not think I was the one being addressed / In haemorrhoid commercials on the TV set,” ranks pretty highly. It also provides a succinct introduction to the themes of John Grant’s third solo album, which takes its name from the English translations of “midlife crisis” in Icelandic and “nightmare” in Turkish. Lyrically, Grey Tickles, Black Pressure feels even more playful than its predecessors and it’s expertly matched by both a brighter musical palette and a broader musical scope, which extends from the electro-funk squelch of ‘Snug Slacks’ to the string-laden swoon of ‘Geraldine’. If Grant can hit this sort of rich creative form in his late 40s, being middle-aged is definitely nothing to be scared of.
