Television Personalities - Privilege (1989) ☠

Country: United Kingdom
Genre: Jangle Pop
Label Number: FIREUS2-2
☠: Selected by Lass

Given that the crisp Privilege is the Television Personalities' first studio LP in four years, Dan Treacy has every right to be in a less-than-sunny mood -- songs like "All My Dreams Are Dead," "This Time There's No Happy Ending" and "Sad Mona Lisa" are to be expected when a fertile songwriting talent finds himself without means of recording and releasing new material. The end result is one of the group's most personal and dark records, although the wonderful "Salvador Dali's Art Party" -- which runs down all of the luminaries on the guest list -- is a return to the psychedelic name-dropping of the group's formative years.
