Hercules and Love Affair, Blue Songs Album Review


A few years ago, whilst working in an especially depressing call centre, I was subjected to a staff training day. Amidst the myriad absurdities, in amongst the management-speak and exercises in which my colleagues and I shouted company policies at each other for no discernible reason, one speech was given which contained an element of truth. It concerned the elusive 'x-factor', that special quality which would elevate us above our fellows and transform us into smooth-talking model employees.
