4.0 out of 5 stars You'll become addicted!, 30 May 2002

This review is from: Tellin'stories (Audio CD)
Okay so the Charlatans kept going on and on how this album sounds unfinished. We as listeners or critics will notice that it truly sounds unfinished but we cannot blame them.
Their keyboard player and long-time friend Rob Collins had just passed away in a car accident leaving an empty void in their souls.
Nevertheless when Rob died the album was almost finished and in fact they were preparing to release their second single "One to another". The video was shot seven days before his death.
But let us stick to this incredible album....yes I do think it's wonderful and many fans would agree though to the disappointment of others might sounds unfulfilling.
Singles like "North Country Boy", "One to Another" and "How High" all went into the UK's top 10 and I don't know about you but I found the videos to be memorable.
Songs like "Get on it" sounds gospel and some people may be even inspired by the soothing and yet reassuring lyric that "no matter how you're feeling you're never on your own" or "With no shoes", the starter of many gigs.
And the album ends as a tribute to the most memorable keyboardist ever- Rob Collins with the soulful "Rob's theme" than features some recordings of this piano-wizard as a child.
Two thumbs up for this fifth and excellent album by the Charlatans. And if this doesn't quench your thirst, trust me you'll end up buying all of their albums. I adore them so should you!
