    GILBERT IS GOD - ( from 2007 )
    As I approach my 50th year, I have come to the conclusion that I have been denying myself for many many years ! Namely Gilbert O'Sullivan is the greatest tunesmith and most underated artist of the last 35 years. There I said it. In a recent concert at the Barbican he played a brilliant set of old favourites and new tracks from his latest CD, A Scruff At Heart. The new tracks bristled with hooks and I was humming along before they had even finished. and this on first hearing ! How many groups/artists can you say this about ? I found I knew the lyrics to most of the older songs, and I was singing along like never before, and I am a veteran of thousands of gigs across the whole spectrum of music over the last 35 years ( Penetration are up next). Gilbert has shrugged off Prog, Glam, Disco, Punk, Post Punk ,Electro, Alternative, Rave etc and is now at the age of 60 looking and sounding better than ever. I came out of the Barbican a happier more contented person having finally accepted the truth: Gilbert is God. This is no nostalgic knee jerk reaction. RC, give this man much overdue and deserved respect now!

    Gilbert O'Sullivan - Gilbertville -The master of miserable mirth returns ( from 2011 )

    The artist formerly know as Ray O'Sullivan carved out a healthy 70s career for himself by combining sparkling wit and sombre misery, so it was only a matter of time before such an equally musically schizophrenic figure as Morrissey got round to covering him. Yet, while Moz's inclusion of Nothing Rhymed in his live sets would seem to be an unbeatably perfect fit, others also took their inspiration from Gilbert.
    The lyrical articulacy and melodic confidence of Madness and, even more so, Squeeze can be at least partly traced back to O'Sullivan's skill in dressing up domestic mundanity as catchy pop (We Will, Matrimony). Every time Chris Difford heads for the kitchen sink he's reminded of how Gilbert was the plumber who fit the pipes in the first place, and it's a pleasure to report that his number's still in the book.
    Nothing on Gilbertville quite matches the glories of old, but a few tracks come close. The country stroll of Here's Why pushes every smart pop button there is, The Allergy Song is selfdeprecatingly hilarious ("I've read a lot of Shakespeare/I've seen his movies too"), and Down Down Here is a midtempo ballad at risk of overdosing on its own gorgeousness.
