Some would say that Starsailor are Chorley's biggest contribution to modern culture since the opening of the nearby Charnock Richard M6 motorway services in the 1960s. Like the aforementioned favourite resting point for Blackpool day-trippers Love Is Here (Live)
, will become a solid, long-stay favourite for fans. Recorded in November 2001, one month after the release of their debut album and while they were still being lauded as "the next big thing", the main feature is a live run through of the album. New composition "Some of Us" and the B-side "From a Whisper to a Scream" are also performed, along with versions of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" and Elton John's "Rocket Man". The concert footage and the audio (Dolby 5.1) are of a high quality, and breakthrough tracks "Poor Misguided Fool" and "Alcoholic" sound stunning. The show is hampered, though, by the limited material the guys can draw upon, and Walsh's repetitive melancholic delivery of existing songs. What does become apparent is that after a couple more albums and a little more musical experimentation Starsailor are on course to be live giants.
On the DVD: Love is Here includes a good Channel 4 documentary on the band. Three other documentaries are also incorporated (a tour featurette, the making of "Love is Here", as well as a short film on the recording of "Born Again"). The promo videos for Starsailor's first four singles ("Good Souls", "Alcoholic", "Lullaby" and "Poor Misguided Fool"), and acoustic versions of two tracks are also on the disc. Despite the varied mix, these extras only last a few minutes and vary in quality. However they can all be accessed easily via the stylish menus. --John Galilee
