"I Get Along" is a pretty good single, although it is not one of my favorites from their recent "Release" CD. It's much poppier than most of their past singles, and many people have compared the sound to the Beatles or Oasis, which is pretty accurate. Apparently, the lyrics concern the rift between British Prime Minister Tony Blair and one of his cabinet members. UK listeners may understand that reference, but fortunately, the song is so well-written that it seems to apply to any kind of relationship. Overall, the song is stronger than most pop songs being played today.
Now on to the eagerly anticipated B-sides...unfortunately, those fall a bit flat. "Searching for the Face of Jesus" is a rather anemic mid-tempo ballad that chugs along nicely, but really goes nowhere (and don't ask me what the lyrics mean, because I have no idea). "Between Two Islands" is much better. It's a mid-tempo pop song with Spanish-style guitars on it. The song ends on a particularly strong note when Neil weaves in lyrics from Marvin Gaye's "I Want You." However, it is a bit sad to hear a PSB song that needs a sample to be more interesting. Overall, this CD is well worth the price, even though it is not up to par with the PSB's singles collection. Completists, such as myself, will likely be quite satisfied.
