Another good output !?!?!?!,
This review is from: Grace/Wastelands (Audio CD)
I loved Babyshambles and only came across them recently and got all of there releases including Down in Albion,The Blinding E.P, Shotter's Nation. So i wanted to discover more and i came across the Libertines and added both albums to my collection. But i was rather interested in this album after seeing in the credits that Graham Coxon. The guitar genius from Blur(Another of my favorite bands) and Adam Ficek from earlier Babyshambles releases on drums.
So when the album arrived and i listened to the album from start to finish i knew that Pete had taken a whole new direction. Every single song is acoustic guitar based and is rather gentle as well as soul searching. This is Pete recovery and searching for a new beginning.
The single was very strong "Last of the English Roses" but there is more than just this every song especially "1939 Returning" has a beautiful meaning and a meaningful story behind it. I would get it and see for yourself!!!
