4.0 out of 5 stars Starlites, 7 May 2004
This review is from: Mouthful Of Love (Audio CD)
YHA are all out dirty rock music. Ten headbanging, ear smashing tracks to delight any hard rock fan. Comparisons with ACDC are inevitable as YHA hold nothing back in this riotous debut.
Their 2 singles Tommy Shots and Misty Row appear, as well as being supported by songs like To the Teeth and the brilliant Starlite. From the opening track Mouthful of Love to final track Misty Row, YHA are on all out attack.
If you like your rock music hard, dirty and relentless then you will love Mouthful of Love. YHA have announced their arrival on the hard rock scene and with some strong live reviews, are showing they have every intention of sticking around for a long time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated, 1 May 2004
This review is from: Elastica (Audio CD)
Elastica's debut album is one of the most underrated albums of the Britpop era. They were written off because Justine was dating Damon, so everybody saw them as nothing but a bunch of cash in chancers.
From the opening track, Line Up to the brilliant final song Stutter, this album simply roars past you at real speed. 15 Songs in 38 minutes, and they manaqe to go from all out pop rock like Waking Uo and Blue, to beautifully written atmospheric tracks like Never Here and Hold Me Now.
Its sad that Justine is still seen as "Blur Indoors" by many, but this debut album is simply too good to ignore. The lyrics range from flirtatious humour like in Car Song, to the lonliness of Never Here. The songs are catchy pop/rock tracks, but unlike most Britpop it doesn't sound like yesterdays news.
Its a shame Elastica never really followed this album up, but there is enough to enjoy on this debut album to allow us to forgive them for that. Nine years on and this is still a real favourite of mine, and if you can ignore all the media snipings at Justine for having a famous boyfriend at the time the album was released then you will be listening to a seriously underrated and quite brilliant album.
