Canadian Liam Titcom was in 2004signed to Sony and it looked very bright for his musical career. However, he got drop-before the second album and after that his television career has been clearly better.
However, he is back with a new album and by far the best so far. It feels like the pressure is gone and that he makes the music that he thinks is fun to record. Ok, he has not undergone any major musical redesign, but it sounds fresher and song material is much stronger than before.
The opening "Cicade," "Landslide" and "Brick By Brick" is really really good, and if the level had been this high throughout the disc, it had been one of this year's best. Now is the other half a bit weaker, but it’s still a good album that you should check out if you like well crafted pop / rock.
The Cure´s original name was Easy Cure, which was taken from the name of one of the group´s early songs. The name was later shortened to The Cure because frontman Robert Smith felt the name was too American and "too hippyish".
