5.0 out of 5 stars Quite simply a classic 18 April 2005
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Undoubted Classic 17 July 2005
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Timeless melodies........" 25 Sep 2001
Format:Audio CD
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........"

By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
John Power probably made very little money and was barely known, but later gained fame and fortune as the leader of Cast, but musically all the riches were here at the pen olf Lee Mavers. This one album contains more briliance than a whole career from most other artists.
"There She Goes" is a timeless classic but in the context of this album it doesn't particularly stand out. Lyrically incisive ("I'll see 95 in Doledrum") , never less than hopeful, Mavers crafts perfect 3 minute pop songs that leave you aching for more, "Timeless Melody" is indeed that, "Way Out" a quirky waltz. Not anote is wasted even on the mini epic that closes the original album, "Looking Glass".
Lee Maver's has said his piece, and made more of an impression in forty minutes than most songwriters do in a lifetime.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Lost Scrolls of the music industry? 8 Jan 2001
Format:Audio CD
For only a few brief years you had bands like The La's and the Stone Roses. While most people have come accross the Roses stuff. Many have missed this. The La's eponymous album is up there pushing all the way as one of the greatest albums of all time. Play it to your mates and they say "Jesus man I know that song" or "God who are they" Still the only song they will know is the "there she goes" which is like going to rob a bank and after getting the vault open, walking out with a pound coin that someones dropped. "there she goes" is not even close to their best. Try "liberty ship", or "way out" or "feelin" In fact listen to the whole album and its like no thats my favourite no that one is. Read the interviews in which the singer/songwriter/guitarist claimed that he had two albums of stuff that would blow the 1st album away. As he put it so well himself "It puts a shiver down my spine when people talk of our only album as great I have another two albums worth of stuff written which puts it well in the shade but theres nobody in the music biz I could ever trust with it so it will never be recorded". What has Lee Mavers got locked in his cupboard? The LOST SCROLLS?
