  • Audio Mixers: John Kelly; John Brough; Paul Heaton.
  • QUENCH, the Beautiful South's sixth album, finds them a little more musically introspective and somewhat more melancholy than before, though the songs still maintain the band's twin obsessions: singing about drunks, about drinking, and about being drunk; and disguising brutal and often cruel lyrics with deceptively sweet (verging on sad) music. From the slide-guitar tinged "How Long's a Tear Take to Dry," through the miniature epic-weepie "The Slide," to the jaunty snipe-fest of "Your Father and I," the album swings on a number of intriguing contradictions.
  • "Dumb" introduces an oddly introspective mood before breaking into a Motown-influenced chorus. "Window Shopping for Blinds" swaps its string-saturated opening for something that mixes a German beer hall and a Western saloon, while "I May Be Ugly" is a track that, other than its explicit drug references and crass juxtapositional jokes, wouldn't sound out of place being sung by Jim Croce. The best cut, however, is the piano-driven "The Table," which obliquely examines a familial relationship from the perspective of a table.
