In 1984, amidst the Cold Wave’s prevailing chill, Lloyd Cole surprised with his debut album, “Rattlesnakes,” which radiated warmth and melody. While the album possessed a hint of darkness, it was firmly rooted in a time when rock readily embraced elegance and literary references. The track “Forest Fire” has acquired a hint of classic allure in the esteemed sense over the years. Although “Rattlesnakes” may have aged more than subsequent works like “Meanstream” (1987), it remains a thoroughly enjoyable listen. Lloyd Cole has left an indelible mark on his era, paving the way for a resurgence of melodies and crafting a remarkable discography.
