5.0 out of 5 stars Better & Better, 13 May 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Spinning Top (Audio CD)
Mr Coxon continues to impress with what is, guitar wise, his strongest album to date. Other reviews have mentioned a late sunny evening setting as being an appropriate mood for listening and I would have to agree. There are many stand out moments but as with Spiritualised's Ladies and Gentleman and the Jarvis Cocker Record, the effects are best felt when swallowed whole. Strangely for any album these days it gets stronger as it goes on, Look Into the Light is a great opener but from the middle on it simply steps up to a new found quality. Dead Bees is as strong a song in effect as any solo album of the Blur family have managed but Feel Alright (nodding to Battery In Your Leg though distinctly happier)is a tour de force. Sorrows Army as a choice of single makes sense, a strong song and a northern soul second half makes it as interesting as it is accessbile.

In all another great top notch addition to the Graham Coxon catalogue which is at least the equal if not exceeds his previous creative high of the Kiss of Morning.
