If James will be remembered as an underrated band, then this will always be their underrated album. I can't say it's understated though-this is full-blown James in every sense of the word. Loud yet meloncholy, camp yet sexy, it really is an album of contrasts.
The melodies are among the bands greatest, eash song plays with your every expectation (Play Dead and Lost A Friend especially). Then there's Booths lyrics: covering more themes than Laids raw emotion, here the focus shifts from relationships to sexuality (Homeboy), the environment (Greenpeace) and even suicide (Blue Pastures).
The album contains highlights in abundance, from the sexy, pop-drenched beauty of 'She's a Star', to the lyrically rich, optimistic 'Tomorrow' ('i see you falling, how long to go before you hit the ground? you keep on screaming: don't you see me here? am i a ghost to you?).
In perspective with their other albums, Whiplash falls just short of Laid and Millionaires, but far surpasses Gold Mother and even outshines the brilliant Seven.
A band in true contol of the sonic power they possess. Enjoy

This really is right up there with Laid (and the best of, obviously) in the title for best James album. It's easy to see where they had come from with this; Watering Hole could easily have been on Laid, Lost A Friend has Gold Mother written all over it and Tomorrow is almost big enough for Seven. Avalanche currently holds 4th place in my list of favourite James tracks (behind Sit Down, Born Of Frustration and Just Like Fred Astaire), with Go To The Bank coming a close fifth.
If you like the stuff off the Best Of, you could certainly do worse than this for another James album. This really is brilliant.

This is the band that has brought us great album like 'Seven andGoldmother'. This album is full of keyboards and guitar melodies, which form electricity within their songs. Songs like 'She's a Star' will stick in your head for days as Tim Booth's vocals will ring and ring in your head for days. There are some other good songs on the album such as 'Lost a Friend and Avalanche' which are not ground breaking but more of a look at what they used to do back in the old days of there previous albums.

I can't believe how well this album is put together. It begins with the soul-stirring "Tommorow" and moves onto the almost reflective "Lost A Friend". "She's A Star" is the best track on this album and stands up there with "Sit Down" as the best James anthems. The songs like "Go To The Bank" grow on you, even though they feel un-Jamesy at first. You have to marvel at such a unique band with Tim's unique vocals, James never fade away...
