Album Review

Compared to the austere The Last Temptation of Chris, Cashmere If You Can — Chris Difford's third solo album of new songs — is a celebration, one kicked off with the glammy stomp of “1975” and fueled by the rockabilly of “Back in the Day.” Tellingly, the titles of those two songs telegraph part of the album’s autobiographical pull, but Cashmere If You Can isn’t an exercise in nostalgia. Difford draws clear-eyed comparisons between his past and present, writing wry, perceptive songs about parenthood and other middle-aged adventures. Never succumbing to easy sentiment or cynicism, Difford is perceptive throughout Cashmere If You Can, but what makes it his best solo album — and best project in recent memory — is how he pairs his wit and insight with a rich musicality, one that shifts from those aforementioned buoyant rockers to pretty bouts of introspection, all delivered with a soulfulness that’s cheerfully self-deprecating and humane.

Customer Reviews

A touching and familiar voice

This one is as good as anything I've heard in years. I don't know if the kids will go for it--but who cares? And the repeated track is worth hearing twice. Buy it today if you want to know why getting older isn't so bad.

Third track is missing

Great album if iTunes would include the third track instead of including the second track twice. Fix it and I'll add stars to my review.


This is an absolutely great album. Chris continues to impress with his stories of love, loss and longing. He talks about everything from growing old to dealing with snotty teenagers. His observational powers have not diminished over the years. If you liked Squeeze, you owe it to yourself to check this out. Even if you didn't, if you like a great singer/songwriter with wit and a skillful turn of phrase, download this today. What are you waiting for?

Lyricist/guitarist Chris Difford teamed with singer/composer Glenn Tilbrook to lead Squeeze, one of the most acclaimed and longest-lived bands to emerge from the new wave era. Often regarded as the Lennon and McCartney of their generation, the duo's smart, sophisticated brand of pop never achieved commercial success commensurate with their critical favor, although singles like "Pulling Mussels (From the Shell)," "Tempted," and "Black Coffee in Bed" remain timeless cult classics.
