Ed Harcourt

The Beautiful Lie

Barbara Mitchell

British singer-songwriter extraordinaire Ed Harcourt has a best-of album, but we in the U.S. get The Beautiful Lie two years late. He’s a master of dynamic, hopelessly romantic, swoon-inducing pop-rock and a bit like Tigger when he plays live. “You Only Call Me When You’re Drunk” is a perfect example of his devastatingly poignant wit.

The bottom line:***1/2
