Picking up where he left off, Ezra Furman’s Transangelic Exodus is his most eclectic collection to date, his roots still evidently clear with fuzzy rock ‘n’ roll underpinning a number of tracks.

However, it’s the likes of God Lifts Up The Lonely and Compulsive Liar that show Furman’s dramatic stylistic changes; there’s a darkness and intensity about these tracks, with the passion and depth of Furman’s lyrics alongside his pain and hurt.

The upbeat and excitable flashes are often still laden with misery and are fleeting at best, apart from the album’s closing track I Lost My Innocence, where there’s a real frivolity in Furman’s vocal. An exceptional album in which it’s hard to find fault in.
