Product Description

Product Description

Grace/Wastelands is the debut solo album from Babyshambles frontman  and ex-Libertine Pete Doherty. Featuring collaborations with Graham Coxon and Dot Allison, Grace/Wastelands is a record full of invention and charm. Strong, poetic lyrics are backed by a blend of unpolished guitar twangs and softer acoustic strums. Includes the single "Last Of The English Roses".

4.0 out of 5 stars What Babyface Did Next - A Rake's Progress 25 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD
It would appear that young Mr Doherty has taken a little
time away from his demons (or at the very least, on the
basis of this, his solo debut release, they would appear
to be treating one another a little more kindly of late).

Poetic self-destruction has a long and noble legacy of course.
However,the latter-day rake and tormented romantic
pose was beginning to wear a bit thin.

The blood drawings were certainly never going to be his salvation.
Just fodder for another bad dealer making an opportunistic buck
on the back of his, very public, dissolution.

More show-off than Shelley. More brazen than Baudelaire.

Everyone loves a bad boy nonetheless and those of us who
retained some belief in this young man's abilities have
been rewarded for our patience.

The twelve compositions delivered in this new project do indeed prove,
if proof were needed, that Mr Doherty can indeed write and sing a song.

'Grace / Wastelands' is a very English affair. Willfully so.

Opening track 'Arcady' is, on the surface, a breezy affair but the
worm in the rose is never far away. Pretty perversity.

Single 'Last Of The English Roses' is magnificent.
A series of fragmented memories woven into a
captivating melody and a killer chorus.

The lyrical discourse of '1939 Returning' was a tad confusing
for this old Wolf but will almost certainly be understood immediately
by anyone else listening to it. A moody piece, well performed.

'A Little Death Around The Eyes' is another dark elegy.
The uncertain position of the storyteller in relation to
the subject is morally ambiguous and all the more disturbing
because of this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good output !?!?!?! 31 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
I loved Babyshambles and only came across them recently and got all of there releases including Down in Albion,The Blinding E.P, Shotter's Nation. So i wanted to discover more and i came across the Libertines and added both albums to my collection. But i was rather interested in this album after seeing in the credits that Graham Coxon. The guitar genius from Blur(Another of my favorite bands) and Adam Ficek from earlier Babyshambles releases on drums.

So when the album arrived and i listened to the album from start to finish i knew that Pete had taken a whole new direction. Every single song is acoustic guitar based and is rather gentle as well as soul searching. This is Pete recovery and searching for a new beginning.

The single was very strong "Last of the English Roses" but there is more than just this every song especially "1939 Returning" has a beautiful meaning and a meaningful story behind it. I would get it and see for yourself!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Discovering DOHERTY 28 Feb 2012
By sabrina
Format:Audio CD
I love all the songs on this album. It's really rare but I think there's none I don't really appreciate.
I bought it and loved it immediately, after only one listening.
Don't try to find something resembling The Babyshambles or the Libertines in this CD........Doherty by himself is different. it's just perfect.
Can't wait for a new one

5.0 out of 5 stars SENSATIONAL... 22 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD
I have always liked Petes stuff, well most of it anyway. This album is by far the best work he has done. Lyrically faultless and very deep and meaningful. If you want acoustic melodies, genius lyrics then trust me this album is a must. It surpassed all my expectations, and gets better everytime i listen to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars building a legacy 17 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD
This record has to be seen in perspective as part of a body of work and a step in the right direction. There's enough flashes of brilliance here to suggest a continuing and developing career...something that is all too rare these days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful 11 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD
The best album from Mr Doherty since the libertines were around. A much polished effort than many of his Babyshambles efforts but If you want an album of thrashing punk rock like The Libertines, Babyshambles or Dirty Pretty Things you're not going to get it. This album is full of raw acoustic melodies, reminiscent of French Romanticism yet full of English Patriotism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back from the Dead 17 Mar 2009
By N. Hill
Format:Audio CD
Amazing Album, beautiful lyricism and heartfelt melodies. The songs 'Broken Love Song' 'New Love Grows' and 'I am the rain' are three of the best songs you will hear this year. You should own this album as I'm sure the word 'classic' will be applied to it at a later date!!

I much prefer the stuff he did with Libertines and Babyshambles, this was all slow music, none of that get up and go he used to do.
