That being the case, you'd expect I'd have been thrilled by the arrival of 'The Lexicon Of Love II' earlier this year and there are those who I normally trust who tell me that's it worth bothering with. But I remain sceptical and I can't bring myself to chance it somehow. Perhaps in 2017, who can say?
In the meantime, f I wanted a pointer towards what I might hear, Martin Fry's first ever Christmas song might give a clue. With a definite hint of 'Last Christmas' - George Michael will supress a rueful smile - meeting Robbie Williams and the inevitable sackful of jingling bells and Yuletide clichés full of candy canes and mistletoe, it's done what LoL 1 never did and has flown under the seasonal market this year. Perhaps cementing my doubts about the album? Or will it grow on me over the years. .?.
