Equally Cursed and Blessed is the third studio album by Welsh band Catatonia, released in April 1999 via Blanco y Negro Records. It reached number one in the UK Album Chart, and three singles were released from it: "Dead from the Waist Down", "Londinium" and "Karaoke Queen".

Dead From The Waist Down. Dazed, Beautiful And Bruised. MusicBrainz: Equally Cursed And Blessed. this site: Equally Cursed And Blessed.

Equally Cursed and Blessed is another breath of fresh pop air from Catatonia. Cerys Matthews' distinctive vocal roars and whispers are in full force throughout these tracks, and the blend of songs on this release surpasses all of Catatonia's prior collections. The first single, the weeping "Dead From the Waist Down" features a full string section, and the magnificent "Karaoke Queen" is backed by a disco beat and razor-sharp guitar hooks

Equally Cursed and Blessed. Album of the Day. Catatonia. Thursday, April 11, 2019. After scoring a commercial breakthrough with 1997's INTERNATIONAL VELVET, Welsh band Catatonia built on that success with EQUALLY CURSED AND BLESSED. The set's 1999 release date puts it at the tail end of the Brit-pop era, and its confidence and punchy songs are in keeping with that scene - tracks like Dead from the Waist Down, Londinium and Storm The Palace remain irresistibly catchy

If International Velvet was Catatonia exploding into the public sights, Equally Cursed and Blessed is the sound of a band realizing what's happened. As such, it is a much more personal album. The opening track "Dead from the Waist Down" provides a tour-bus perspective on America while "Bulimic Beats" is glassily fragile and backs Cerys Matthews's voice with a harp.
