Paul Roland: In The Opium Den: The Early Recordings 1980-1987

Album Review

Cabinet of earliest curiosities.

Dubbed “the male Kate Bush” by Robyn Hitchcock, Paul Roland approaches his songs like hand-stitched labours of love to be glimpsed through an arcane, wonder-tinted microscope, as he ponders Victorian murderers, supernatural experiences or the horror stories of Edgar Allen Poe and HP Lovecraft.
