So, this is what happened to James' out-takes!
on 8 October 2015
Oh Dear! I approached this album with some trepidation, one of my favourite bands since the day I first heard 'Jocelyn Square' whilst walking through Jocelyn Square! Serendipity? You bet. However, this does not match the splendour of any of Love and Money's earlier albums, and 'This Is The Last Time' excepted, few other songs make the grade here.
So why the three stars? The band still play well, and it's still better than much of what's called music today, maybe it will grow on me, I hope so, I wanted so much to like it.
I've long been an admirer of James Grant's writing skills, and most of his solo work is on an entirely different level to this album. Really does sound like out-takes from his solo work and, even Last Time sounded better last time!
