Album Review

Bill Pritchard's third album, produced by old school French popster Etienne Daho, is the album that cemented his European popularity, to the point that the British-born singer/songwriter eventually settled in Paris. Sounding like the best album the Go-Betweens never made (Pritchard's voice has a startling resemblance to Robert Forster's), or a collaboration between Lloyd Cole and Prefab Sprout, Three Months, Three Weeks, & Two Days is a low-key, largely acoustic album of smart and sophisticated pop songs with winsome lyrics, pretty melodies, and memorable choruses. The richly textured "Tommy and Co," a minor college radio hit in the States featuring backing vocals by Francoise Hardy, and the haunting, nearly solo "We Were Lovers" are the highlights on this brief album, but all ten tracks are warm and evocative. Pritchard's mellifluous voice is up front in the arrangements, and Daho wisely avoids any sort of flashiness in the production. This album is an underappreciated gem that's begging for a cult following.

Customer Reviews

Bill's finest hour!

I think this was Bill's finest hour and although total sales might not support me in my view of his musical genius, this album is well worth a listen. Lots of highlights from this teacher from the west midlands, but for anyone new to Bill Pritchard, I would recommend the full drama of 'Kenneth Baker' and its increasingly furious guitar and lyrics. 'Better to be Bitter' is quite a contrast for you to cry into your pint over wheras songs like 'Romance Sans Paroles' and 'Je N'aime Que Toi' demonstrate his squeaky guitar brilliance. Bill Pritchard may not be a household name in the UK, but he is rather more famous in France and Belgium as one of our finer independent artists. He is still recording and released a new album in 2005, although as far as I know, it is not available in the UK yet...

Biography

Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '80s

The dry, deadpan voice and introspective storytelling of Bill Pritchard has drawn comparisons to Morrissey and Lloyd Cole. Although he was born in Lichfield, England, Pritchard is more well-known outside of his homeland; Pritchard has amassed cult followings in Japan, Italy, Holland, Belgium, and France, where he eventually relocated. Pritchard's first two LPs, Bill Pritchard and Half a Million, triggered interest at Play It Again Sam Records. In 1989, the label released his third album Three Months,...
