Taken from the “Ballads of Peckham Rye” Album, They used to talk about, “The difficult second album,” a scenario where the promise or hype surrounding an acts debut was not matched by the follow up. It undoubtedly holds a certain truth, with some artists perhaps feeling the time pressure of writing a follow up, the vagaries of record company politics, budgets and so forth or even the fickle hand of fashion creating an artistic void. Thankfully The Ballads Of Peckham Rye turns such conventions on their heads, as it takes everything that was good about the debut release from Blue Rose Code and does it better.
