A great track off a great album....
His voice is an acquired taste to be sure but it suits this lament and the instruments perfectly match the mood and theme.
I actually think Ant has the best range and most emotive singing voice of the four non-lead-vocalists who have sung on their solo albums (TB, SH, AP and MR).
And I agree, WATE is a great album. Over the many years, I've flip/flopped between Wise and Geese in citing my favourite of Ant's output.
