Some albums bear emotional scars of the artist and the listener equally well.  I cannot recommend Tindersticks highly enough if you are having a drink of vodka and lime and either reminiscing about a lost love or wondering how the hell you managed to land into the situation you’re currently in.  We need albums for wistful moments.  This one should be filed next to your Chet Baker and Joy Division albums when a profound case of the blues hit you.

Think of a baritone-voiced Nick Cave with a more whiskey-drenched voice singing with a Stax Records house band.  Dark, but full of soul.  Recommended.
