2 stars Lovesighs is a companion EP to the 1991 No-man debut Loveblows and Lovecries. In fact, it's so much of a companion that I could easily just copy the review of the main album and paste it here.

It is a compilation of proto-trip hop songs with a strong art-pop flavour and persistent dub-loop rhythms. The song quality is very uneven, with only the opener Heartcheat Pop and Iris Murdoch standing out in this mostly faceless collection of songs. Also the vocal qualities of Tim Bowness is a point open for discussion. While his David Sylvian inspired mumblings can convey a warm and soothing melancholy, their monotonous delivery can easily turn a No-man album into a weary listen.

Only for Wilson / No-man completists.
