The Bluetones really rock out on this second album, despite the bizarre Mexican theme that permeates the cover art and a few of the songs. Track 7, 'If', is probably the best song here, but this is one of those CDs where you can listen all the way through and appreciate every tune.
'Solomon Bites The Worm' (with its strange Spanish mutterings) is another classic, and 'Sleazy Bed Track' is cool too, allowing you to imagine getting seduced by Mark Morriss (which would surely be better than getting seduced by the similarly-named Mark Morrison).
These songs are all great live, too... so if you like The Charlatans and aren't familiar with The Bluetones, check out this album.

With album two The Blutones confirm their ability to write great singles with this one containing probably their best. Where the album does suffer slightly is the final third feeling a bit out of place possibly. Can't quite put my finger on it. Another good if not great album.

4.0 out of 5 stars A near perfect album 17 Jan 2001
Format:Audio CD
With their second album, the bluetones decided upon a very different approach to their first. Now while this proved their skill and versatility, it may have been a factor in their decline to semi-obscurity. When I first listened to this album, I was very disappointed with it in comparison to expecting to fly, but I suppose that's only to be expected, seeing as etf was my favourite album ever. The downbeat western theme pervading the album does grow on you though, and there certainly are some high points. Very high points indeed. Certain songs are classics (Jubjub bird, solomon bites the worm, tone blooze, unpainted arizona) in fact, most of the album is excellent compared to almost anything other than the first album. If you haven't got the first album, then buy that before you buy this. Otherwise, I would recommend buying this, for while it's not as good as etf, it's head and shoulders above anything else out there. Again, there's magical guitar, deep soulful lyrics and far more to offer than their lack of public success would suggest.

The Bluetones burst onto the scene with their first album 'Expecting to Fly'. This is the follow up and exceeds their first offering. The whole Mexican theme pervades the album but don't let that stop you listening. On this album you find a bizarre assortment of instruments including banjo and various wind parts. The stand out tracks are 'At the Resrvoir' and 'Broken Starr'. This album is so good, the frustrating thing is that the ban appear with a corking album, tour a bit and then hibernate for a year or so. Still with music this good let us let them have their liitle perculiarities!

4.0 out of 5 stars Feels like Mexico 28 May 2004
Format:Audio CD
From the artwork to the track titles, this album feels like a nice holiday. Tone Blooze and Unpainted Arizona are relaxed country blues for the britpop lover. Singles like 'If' and 'Solomon bites the worm' rank among the best britpop has to offer. The real trumps of this album however are the last two tracks 'I heard you were dead' and 'Broken Starr'. Think the stone roses, I think they're that good. Some indifferent tracks in the middle are inevitable, but there are some real gems.

5.0 out of 5 stars down at the last chance saloon 6 Feb 2003
By james C
Format:Audio CD
Return to the Last Chance Saloon, second album from erstwhile indie stalwarts the Bluetones, is a simple must-buy for any fan if you haven't already got it. even if you aren't, buy it, i guarantee you wont be sorry!
Released in 1997, the album is a move in a different musical direction from debut offering "Expecting to Fly", dispensing with the trademark jangle of Adam Devlin's Rickenbacker into a more
rock-like sound.
There is an apparent wild-west/mexican feel to the album, said to have come about during liberal consumption of tequila during its recording, reflected in top notch single "solomon bites the worm", a clever take on the poem "solomon grundy". I find difficulty in finding any bad tracks on the album, as they all stand out in their own way, although ...If, Sleazy Bed Track and Down At The Reservoir are personal highlights.
As previously said, fans expecting a continuing theme from Expecting to Fly maybe disappointed... but i doubt it. CLASS!

I would say this is a great album. My favourite music is indie, and this is just class. I really recommend this, especially track number 8 'jub-jub bird'. Just excellant vocals and instrumental work.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Belated, Pleasant Surprise 10 April 2011
By G. Don Fielder VINE VOICE
Format:MP3 Download
I've owned this album (on CD) since it came out thirteen years ago in March 1998. I finally took off the cellophane wrapping yesterday, 9 April 2011, and played it for the first time, never having heard any of it before. Why so long? Simple. It was an album of the month with Britannia music. If you had an account with them, you'd receive the AOTM unless you cancelled in good time. I didn't. I couldn't be bothered to send it back. I'm glad I didn't. It's damn good. Reminds me of Shed Seven. Stylewise and soundwise, very much like that band's "Maximum High". Despite the cover art, nothing "cowboy" or "Mexican" about it. Pure Britpop, nice tunes, good guitar. Shame they are planning to call it a day later this year. Buy.
