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.

Fantastic

Three Months is a watershed record for Pritchard, the album that really brought his pop smarts and distinctive croon to the fore. Calling this an "electronic" record is like calling Morrissey melancholy; there are so many subtle hues in this man's brush you'd be forgiven for snatching his palette when we wasn't looking. If you have been seduced by his delightful take on "I'm Your Man" from the Leonard Cohen's tribute record, or if you like Dan Bryk's cover of "Cosy Evenings", then this is a very good place to start.

Nearly Perfect.

This is one of those records that you play over and over because just as you start to realize you're infected by the music, the relatable lyrics start to emerge and hook you. I first heard Tommy & Co. in the 90's and imediatly called the radio station and asked who it was. I had never heard of Bill, but I promtly went down to the local imports record store and bought it. I have no idea why it's Genre is described as Electronic. Listen to the tracks, they're gorgeous. I give this record 4 stars because "Kenneth Baker", although a great song musically, is lyrically not becomming of the rest of this music and a little distracting from the thrust of the rest of the record.

Biography

Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '80s

The dry, deadpan voice and introspective storytelling of Bill Pritchard have 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. The label released Parce Que in 1988, a collaborative...
