Povestitor ironic si poet romantic deopotriva, Baxter Dury are in palmares sapte albume de studio si o compilatie best-of. Cel mai recent disc, I Thought I Was Better Than You, a fost lansat la inceputul acestei luni, de Heavenly Recordings.

I Thought I Was Better Than You reprezinta o noua era in cariera lui Baxter Dury si o ocazie pentru intrarea in scena a unui nou personaj narator, „asa-zis conflictual”, cum il descrie artistul. Prin intermediul sau, cantautorul poate vorbi liber despre mixul toxic dintre descendenta sa (relatia complicata cu tatal sau, cantaretul Ian Dury) si presiunea sociala aferenta. „Am scris despre cum e sa fii tinut prizonier de succesul altcuiva”, spune artistul.

Noul disc vine ca o continuare a romanului autobiografic Chaise Longue, publicat in 2021, in care Baxter Dury spune povestea copilariei sale neobisnuite. Stilul relaxat, cu influente hip-hop, face din I Thought I Was Better Than You un soundtrack potrivit pentru carte deoarece „reflecta perfect muzica pe care o ascultam la vremea respectiva. Eu si tovarasii mei nu eram deloc indie. Eram mai degraba fani graffiti, cu sireturi colorate, ascultam Afrika Bambaataa si fumam mult”, spune artistul.

A vibrant record that is a self-deprecating yet poignant reflection on a complicated and chaotic upbringing. – Uncut

Baxter’s third cracking album in a row. – Mojo

Dury is alternately very funny, oddly disturbing and genuinely touching, which is a lot of ground to cover in under half an hour. – The Guardian

The new album from Baxter Dury dips in and out of typically bizarre scenes from an indie sitcom written by an English bohemian whilst also tilting at least half his director’s cap to the contemporary princes of hip hop to deepen its rich, dark, psychedelic trip into a tapestry of madness. – Louder Than War
