Album Review: Cosmo Jarvis - 'Is The World Strange Or Am I Strange?'
Perplexing and risible
Yet, although Stephen Fry was apparently enamoured of Cosmo Jarvis’ ditty ‘Gay Pirates’, the rinky-dink, seaside-pub-banjo is hardly up to the drama and intrigue that would no doubt have accompanied an old salt’s exploration of the Northwest Passage. At least on that track, though, Jarvis is not rapping over plastic folk or indie skiffle, as he does elsewhere throughout this perplexing and risible album.
