I don't own any other Bluetones albums, and only know a handful of songs which aren't on this album, so I can't compare it to other stuff. All I can do is tell you about this album, and it's pretty damned good.
Two of the singles, Keep The Home Fires Burning and Autophilia, are still my favourite tracks, but throughout the album Mark Morriss' distictive vocals soar out in melody driven music which is generally delightful on the ears. It's hard not to like Last Of The Great Navigators and Tiger Lilly, and the closing Emily's Pine is beautiful.
This is one of those albums you get that you can't really fault. There are no 'bad' tracks on it, only ones that are 'less good' than the best ones. And so I would recommend it to you. It's hard to think of comparable artists, as The Bluetones have a distinctive sound (perhaps mostly due to their singer's voice), and this album sticks in my mind so much as an invdividual record.
