This review is from: Slipway Fires (Audio CD)
The album starts off well with 'Wire to Wire' and then goes very rapidly downhill with 'Hostage of Love'; a song about Jesus in the first person. Oh dear. I actually have to skip this track because it's too cringe-worthy to listen to. David Brent could easily have written this.
The rest of the album ambles along, yet tries to be epic. This is the music of a band caught up in it's own arrogance, but who ran out of ideas for the third album.
It's certainly not a good album, but it's not all terrible either. Compared to 'Up All Night' Razorlight are a shadow of their former selves. What happened?
