Chrissie Hynde has been candid in her lyrics before, as the Pretenders oeuvre testifies. Yet this – just when an artist of her years and achievements is supposed to slump into cosy, risk-free predictability – is extraordinary. Fidelity! – a collaboration with 31-year-old Welsh singer JP Jones and friends – is an autobiographical love story of uncommon self-exposure. Their songs are very nearly as good as the tale behind them. Hynde and (former Grace vocalist) Jones met (both "hammered") at a party in 2008. The whole album turns the conventional Lolita complex on its head, and once everyone’s assimilated the shock, it may turn out to be a feminist landmark. Mostly rock-pop with a dash of country, it’s adequate music with outstanding lyrical/vocal garnish. There is, however, one problem.
Still, it’s a mistake to think of JP, Chrissie & the Fairground Boys' Fidelity! as a Hynde solo album in disguise.
