On first listen, it can be quite challenging as heavily distorted guitars kick in from no where in a blaze of feedback and white noise. This can be said of the first track and a few others, yet after this, Coxon breaks into many heartfelt alternative ballads which are a break from the norm and are given to us on acoustic guitars played astonishingly well. One of the best tracks, 'I Wish', combines these two extremes to make for one hell of a song in which Coxon plays all intruments. The chugging acousic guitars give this track a sense of pace which makes it stand out from the rest. After listening to the album a lot, you start noticing more about it like the beautiful harmonies and the touching lyrics. You get used to the white noise and love every minute of it. I would also say it is definately one for blur fans even though it is not much like their music. A good album.
