The The – Love Is Stronger Than Death

Matt Johnson was never afraid to tug at the heartstrings; even as he got older.

A lot of the album went for a strong singer/songwriter feel, and was straighter than the previous efforts, but showed Johnson’s ability around a pop tune (that was always clear, but this album was less oblique).
