5.0 out of 5 stars Something pretty special, 9 Sep 2010
By 
This review is from: The Morning After (Audio CD)
This special Manchester band that can prove impossible to find on Google given their unhelpful name have completed more albums than many acclaimed bands have had singles. Far from churning out mediocre tracks to pay for a new swimming pool as other bands that have been around as long as James appear to do, James have in 2010 produced 2 excellent additions to their stunning and varied back catalogue.

If The Night Before was the band's nod to the 3 minute catchy singles that made them famous, the Morning After displays a stunning level of musicianship, creativity and at times staggering vocals. On Dust Motes, Tim's voice is so honest and powerful it feels like the world is standing still to listen to him "There's a vulture at the end of my bed.."

Dust Motes remains the stand-out track on this album, the gentle transition into the perfect harmonies of "Tell Her I Said So" would be the envy of any band. I can't wait to hear the band create songs such as Rabbit Hole, Got The Shakes, Kaleidoscope and Lookaway on their live tour this winter.

James continue to reduce grown men to tears at their engaging concerts and this album is a very welcome addition to their catalogue. Its warm delivery on, at times, tragic subject matters is a rare gem in British music at this time. Long may James continue to shock people who care to listen to more than just 'Sit Down' and discover a different world through their breathtaking albums.
