Badly Penned Lyrics

I should have been asleep three hours ago, but I'm sitting here sifting through Craigslist for a single good "t4m $$$" ad listening to a couple random things I bought on the iTunes Music store last night, I'm wondering more and more what the hype is over Badly Drawn Boy?

To start, "The Hour of Bewilderbeast" is not-so-much a good album title. The song "The Shining", which I hoped to have at least one good loop from the Steven King/Jack Nicholson movie, is 5:18 seconds long but the lyrics do not begin until 1:40 (after a quief from a french horn). The lyrics sound like they were written by a javascript applet, and frankly I don't own a sweater vest so I'm not sure how much of this I'm allowed to listen to.

It reminds me a bit of when Shakira first broke out with "Tango", and while people were screaming and Carson Daily was swooning over her, I was like a human character in Lassie:

"What's the Shakira? You're out of bold hold hairspray? No? Is Timmy trapped in a well? WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU TRYING TO TELL ME??"

Is this the big thang I've been missing all this time? Then I will slink back into my dark, damp hole of chest-pounding hard house and electronica now, because I can do without this thanks so much.
