Lush "Lovelife" 
This was a friend's cast-off. It is maybe a bit unfair to review this as I have not actually listened to all of it, but I have heard enough. Maybe you dimly remember Lush? Their early stuff featured a lot of shimmery guitar stuff often combined with ethereal high-pitched lady vocals. This features none of that. I think it could maybe be described as their Britpop album, and it successfully manages to leave out everything that people liked about this band and instead give us a load of inconsequential songs about the Love Lives Of Women Today (or the love lives of women in 1995). It is all pretty inconsequential and will also be available from Oxfam in the near future.
Later - but then when playing my iPod through speakers a track called 'Last Night' came up on shuffle and sounded a lot more enjoyable in a wistful and somewhat sonically interesting way. So have I stumbled onto the album's one good track or does it just sound rubbish on iPod headphones?
