Ben’s Brilliant Best Albums of the 1990s. No. 68. The Geraldine Fibbers – Lost Somewhere Between the Earth and My Home

The second track on Lost Somewhere Between the Earth and My Home, The Small Song, features the single best vocal performance of the nineties. There. I said it. That power. That raw emotion. Cor blimey. It would be a great song with a lesser vocal performance, but with that voice? It’s like… whoahh. You get me?

The Geraldine Fibbers were alt-country. I don’t have the expertise to tell you what that means, exactly, but is a pretty good description of them nonetheless. If you don’t like country, you won’t like this, I don’t think. It gets (how to put this without using the word country again in this paragraph) pretty darn country in places. (Yep. Nailed it. Go me.) It is a bit more… alt?.. than most country tho… oh forget it.

Look. How much more do you need? It’s a really good album. Listen to it, yeah?
