Recorded in West Oakland CA 2005/2006 by Bryan Cain and Bob Coover.
All songs by Matthew Edwards except "I Don't Mind" Matthew Edwards and Jun Kurihara.
Released on Le Grand Magistry Records
'... it's stately cha-cha rhythms and Vegas-grade musical lexicon - bells, orchestras, woodwind, extravagently picked guitars - combine with Edwards love-broken lyrics to suggest a lost Graham Greene novel about seedy Brits shipwrecked in Caesars Palace rather than Port-au-Prince... Immaculate'
- WORD Magazine UK
'The Music Lovers unchecked romanticism is as in-line with old Hollywood as it is with influences like Gainsbourg, Morrissey and Nick Cave, pairing silver-tongued, dour lyrics with sweet pop accompaniment... Another batch of pristine, fastidious pop for the forlorn and incurable.'
