Well, It's hardly perfect, but it's a very good follow up album.
From the offset, Money Wheel lures you into thinking this is going to be an album oh so similar to the first one, About What You Know. Followed by What your Boyfriend Said, the tempo keeps upbeat, with typical LMT DNA running right through it.
It's not until track 3 that things slow down, and this goes from being a good album, to a very good album. "She Looks Like Audrey Hepburn" is a much slower song by the band, but is done magnificently. The typical LMT continues afterwards with Shot at Politics & Hey Little Sweetie.
Things slow down again with Joined by an iPod, which has gained many fans already after they made it a free download on MySpace.
Unfortunately, what prevents this from being a 5 star album is just 3 songs, and 2 of them are numbers 7 & 8. Face on a Wall & A Little Heart. Good songs, but not quite up to the standards of the rest of the album.
Time for Anything picks the pace back up however, and the last 2 songs are quickly forgotten, before 2 of the finest tracks on the album. Back of the Pub Quiz, and London Skies, very different, but equally as effective.
The final criticism is the last track, Shoulder to Sigh on, it's like nothing LMT have done before and unfortunately is something they should perhaps not do again. A totally different sound, and it's a shame it's the last song you have to hear on the CD, when you will be begging for a real anthem of an album closer.
