Limited baby pink colored vinyl LP pressing. Originally released in 1999, My Beauty was the second solo album from Dexys Midnight Runners' lead singer Kevin Rowland. The album was mostly unfairly received by critics at the time, but in the years since has come to enjoy cult status. My Beauty comprises twelve cover songs, personally chosen by Kevin and adapted to make the lyrics more directly reflective of his life. The result was an autobiographical concept record about his battle and recovery from addiction, and his own struggle with self-esteem. Despite it's flowing, elegant music, the album was viciously savaged by most critics, with some focusing on Kevin's choice of attire rather than the quality of the music. Now in 2020, on the album's 21st birthday, the world has changed and it's high time to re-evaluate this modern masterpiece.
