A slow crawl, but it got there.,
This review is from: Us And Us Only (Audio CD)
A very select few albums can ever grace your own top 5. Well, 5 can, and about 100 keep trying to muscle their way in. Four or so years after its release I can say that this one has finally made it.
This just the best album the Charlatans have made or are likely to make. The songs are soulful & yearning. They have great hooks. The playing is exquisite. It'll remind you of the Stones, perhaps of Dylan, but more than that it'll make you love this band.
So it joins REMs Automatic For The People, The Stone Roses debut, Elvis Costello's King Of America and Radiohead's OK Computer. The top 5 says goodbye to Doolittle by The Pixies. Shame. Damn fine album that.
