Take a random song off any Prefab Sprout album and chances are it's pretty good. Or rather, excellent. "One Of The Broken", one amongst 19 tracks off the brilliant Jordan: The Comeback (1990), is a very good example. A sweet and intoxicatingly beautiful song, one of singer/songwriter Paddy McAloon's many forays into religious topics, but most of all a clever little, highly melodic tune. Great songwriting craft is something we shouldn't take for granted, but Paddy can do almost nothing wrong it seems to me.
