Helleborine – Shelleyan Orphan

Winner of the most pretentious band name award 1987, 1988 and runners-up to Clan of Xymox in 1989. I bet Jemaur Tayle holds his head in his delicate ivory hands daily, while repeating, what was I thinking?
It is funny but I remember this as being much more left field (I hate that term), but it really is just pop with cellos (not that there is anything wrong with that). Anatomy of Love still sounds good but it is soaked in late 80s Kid Jenson quirky.
Micro review; A gothy Kate Bush on a Sunday afternoon.
Hidden gem; One Hundred Hands
