Jewels For Sophia is the twelfth studio album by Robyn Hitchcock, released on Warner Records in 1999. Since Respect (1993), the hitherto prolific Hitchcock had released just one full studio album (Moss Elixir in 1996), the rest of his recent output consisting largely of repackages and live recordings

Album · 1999 · 12 Songs. Though Robyn Hitchcock first came to attention with the new-wave psychedelia of the Soft Boys and for most of the ‘80s sculpted a similar sound with his backing group, the Egyptians, he has spent much of the ‘90s and onward sporting an acoustic guitar and stripped down arrangements that are almost disquieting in their intimacy. For 1999’s Jewels for Sophia, Hitchcock decided to turn on the electricity and he collaborates here with a number of notable folks, from producer Jon Brion to .

Sometime last Saturday afternoon while listening to Robyn Hitchcock's latest album, I felt a nearly overwhelming urge to lie down on my back in the middle of my dad's van and never get up. I would have too, if I hadn't been driving on the highway at the moment. The song that made me feel that way was "I Feel Beautiful"; the circumstances involved too sordid and ridiculous to go into here. And Jewels for Sophia made me want to abandon the helm of a large and fast- moving vehicle and lie in the back, heedless of the twisted guardrails and smoke, and dirty looks from other motorists. That's good Hitchcock.

Robyn Hitchcock, Album. Other albums by Robyn Hitchcock. Black Snake Diamond Role Exhilarated by the simple joys of the Jonathan Demme movie Storefront Hitchcock, the celebrated Mr. H demonstrates more of the straightforward, idiosyncratic charm and scrumptious tunes that made his film such a surprise. And what a fine piece of work! Without altering his established formula, it's clear the one-time Soft Boys leader has hit on a good vein. No need for lush production, even if it worked well on some of his earlier '90s albums such as Perspex Island. Jewels just collects all his strengths.
