    As always, THE END OF THE WORLD features Londoner Stephen Coates's trademark blend of 1930s jazz and modern electronica. On this effort, however, his focus is primarily on the former. Although there are a handful of songs where the synthesizers take precedence (the eerie "Epitaph For A Dream"), Coates mostly sticks to the Al Bowlly-inspired trad jazz crooner side of his musical personality on tunes such as the lovely "I'll See You In My Dreams" and the dreamy "What It Takes." A perfect late-night listen, THE END OF THE WORLD is The Real Tuesday Weld's best effort so far.

  • Critic Reviews
    Q (Magazine) (p.120) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t is all played with tongue placed firmly in cheek....It is nevertheless rather lovely, tender and altogether affecting."
    Clash (magazine) - "A make-believe live recording of a 'performance from Valentine's Eve 2012'....[A] charming novelty."
