This is truly a great album. I bought this album a year ago and have hardly gone a week since without a play. The quality is that good. I am a lover of many different types of music, particularly anything connected with the 60s beat boom and r'n'b, and although recorded over 20 years later this contains songs that the Beatles or the Who would have been proud of. The whole feel of the disc is timeless, and the tunes some of the strongest I've ever heard, and despite Lee Mavers complaints about the final production sound being "crap",there is an authentic mod beat resonating through the entire proceedings. "There she goes"(Which actually is quite different from the rest of the set in style) is now a radio standard with its soaring melody and classic Byrds-like jangly guitar.Paul weller recently named it as his fave song of the past 15 years in Q magazine.
Other great tracks like "I cant sleep", "Feelin'", Way out, and the brilliant,"Timeless melody" demonstrate the La's ability to perform and in particular Lee Mavers outstanding songwriting skills.
If this was just the start for the La's then think where they could have finished, as probably global superstars, but this is their only complete album, and as it is, is a wonderful legacy to one of the finest bands ever
" Give me one last kiss........"

About 10 years ago, at the height of Oasis and Britpop etc, I purchased this album simply so that I could have my own copy of There She Goes, which was the only song that I played from it at the time. After hearing a Lee Mavers story a couple of years ago, older, wiser and intruiged, I decided to give the album a listen, and it has rarely left my CD-player. It is quite simply one of the greatest guitar-rock/pop albums of all time, and can stand up against the best of them despite what Lee Mavers may say!
From the opening Son of a Gun to the closing Looking Glass, the album is filled with fantastic melodies and deceptively complex lyrics which in my opinion elevate this album to classic status. Great uplifting pop songs like Timeless Melody, Feelin, and songs that appear bright until you scratch the surface to reveal layers darkness (such as I Can't Sleep and There She Goes) ensure that this is one album that demands attention.
15 years after its release it still sounds exciting and fresh, The La's LP is the yardstick against which all other melodic rock albums should be judged.

Much has been said about the La's, Allow me to offer my opinion on a few annonymous choice quotations before i diiscuss the merits of their self titled album. "Best liverpudlian Rock band since the Beatles" (probably true save for maybe Echo and the bunnymen, "Progenitors of Brit pop" (More or less), "Lead singer Lee Mavers = malcontent" (Nah, more perfectionist), "One hit Wonders" (Certainy not!) Glad i got those cleared up. All i need to do now is dispell the myth the La's have been spreading for over two decades, about this record being trash as it's a nothing short of brilliant. I'm sure many of you already know the backstory to the making of this, band ruthlessly sacks a string of top producers over the course of three years, in an effort to capture their unique sound before eventually being hoodwinked by their record label (Go! Discs i beleive), who then decide to release the album without the bands blessing or as Mavers has asserted knowledge. So far the story sounds a little tragic imagine if this had happened to My bloody Valentine during the arduous and exorbitant recording sessions for loveless. We'd all have been robbed of a genre defining masterpiece and maybe that's what's actually transpired here with the La's eponymous album to, Unfortunately we'll never know...

with somebody as hyper critical as Lee Mavers steering the ship though, I'm personally inclined to think the recording sessions for this album could have gone on indefinitely, so perhaps the record label had no choice but to take matters into their own hands, anyway as i alluded to in my first paragraph this album sounds GREAT so this tale is far from a tragedy. The first track "Son Of A Gun" features a beautiful guitar melody and gorgeous vocal harmonies.

This is one of the most underarated album ever. This album has not received enough recognition it deserves. Special Credit has to go to Lee Mavers, Songwriter and singer.This would be one of the best albums in the past generation, if life was different
They create a 60's sound through their music (Pop music). The Strong influence in their music is the Beatles, (spot the guitar riff in 'feeling'). But, The La's themselves have influenced future bands, like Oasis and the Coral. This just shows the magnitude of their one and only album.
Each song except two, last under 3 minutes. But these 3 minutes songs are packed with pure genius, oozing with utter brillance. All of the songs contain a sense of Originality. The stand out tracks are 'timeless melody', and 'there she goes'.
The true test of any album though, is the aspect of longitivety. The La's have achieves that with flying colours.
So do yourself a favour, buy the album. An album which will be sitting proudly in your record collection for many years.
