    Though Damon Gough (AKA Badly Drawn Boy) appears to have rather poor math skills, his fourth album, ONE PLUS ONE IS ONE, reveals that the British singer/songwriter still has a way with beautiful melodies. Formerly hailed as the UK's answer to Beck, Gough has reined in many of his earlier musical eccentricities, streamlining his sound to resemble an English version of Elliott Smith, minus the extreme melancholy of that late performer. (The record is dedicated, in part, to Smith.)
    Driven primarily by piano and acoustic guitar, ONE PLUS ONE is largely the work of Gough alone, and these pared-down arrangements serve his songs better than the over-the-top pop settings of 2002's HAVE YOU FED FISH? "Easy Love" is a gentle, flute-accented ditty, and "This Is That New Song" possesses a stately, string-laden grace that belies its cheeky title. In fact, throughout the record, the quietest moments are often the finest, proving that subtraction, rather than addition, is Gough's strongest suit.
