Fave Albums: The Sundays - Reading, Writing and Arithmetic
The debut album Reading, Writing and Arithmetic by British band The Sundays was released in 1990 and did quite well in the charts based on the success of the single "Here's Where The Story Ends." Harriet Wheeler's voice is pretty amazing, especially on the songs "Skin & Bones," "Can't Be Sure" and "My Finest Hour." It is a beautifully atmospheric album with fantastic jangly guitars by David Gavurin and soaring vocals throughout.
Favorite Lyric: England my country, the home of the free, such miserable weather ("Can't Be Sure")
Favorite Song: "My Finest Hour"
