BOOTH AND THE BAD ANGEL / Booth And The Bad Angel [1996]

Booth and the Bad Angel is an one off album from film composer Angelo Badalamenti and James lead singer Tim Booth.
It's a pretty simple sounding project that comes off sounding like a lite-pop Peter Gabriel/David Bowie hybrid.  It becomes pretty clear, without Julee Cruise's ethereal vocals, Badalamenti' pop music is really nothing special at all.  It's not particularly offensive or anything, in fact the production is quite nice as are Booth's moody lyrics.  An intriguing curio that might have been more effective in it's own era.
