But it's ace...,
By A Customer
This review is from: How I Learned To Love The Bootboys (Audio CD)
Just to redress the balance a little bit, against the other reviewees who seemed slightly underwhelmed by the album... it's tense and breathless and perfectly drawn, not a note is wasted, every sound on the record serves a purpose, as a whole it's geniusly detailed... at 35 minutes in length it works fantastically as a massively exciting pop record. Sorry for this, would never usually write a review on here, but Luke Haines is almost certainly the best British songwriter of the the last ten years/his generation/ever? possibly, and this record is as deserving of this praise as every other one of his masterpieces (all of which also require purchase; the total fantasticness of the other 3 Auteurs ones, plus 2 brilliant Black Box Recorder albums, and the ace Baader Meinhof record). He has two solo albums out later this year, y'know... i think you know what to do.
