5.0 out of 5 stars
A grower of an album, 22 May 2006
On the first couple of listens to this album, I was left feeling rather underwhelmed. The songs (with the exception of 'Manchester') sounded relatively bland and dull. On further listens though, I think this is one of their best albums for many years. The change in direction is slight- there is a country twang to a couple of their songs ('Cologne' and 'Never Lost a Chicken...) but apart from that, there is the usual blend of slow tunes and witty ditties packed with meaningful lyrics. Give this album more than a couple of listens and you'll probably love it!
