2.0 out of 5 stars Better but not good enough, 4 Jun. 2003

This review is from: You Gotta Go There To Come Back (Audio CD)
Well basically i agree with the Amazon review basically. I was introduced to the 'Phonics through Performance and Cocktails and then heard Word Gets Around, both of which are fantastic. Then J.E.E.P came along, and....well....oh dear. Too mellow which i'm not against but it was too drastic. Then when Kelly said the next album would be 'more Kerrang!' in it's sound i breathed a sigh of relief. It's quite clear now that Kelly doesn't read the said magazine.
Yes, they have tried new things, and good on them for doing it, but it doesn't come off too well. Songs like Madame Helga are attempting their old style but with a 70's twist, and once again, it doesn't come off too well, the songs just sound too laboured in my opinion. As the notes in the sleeve say many of these tracks have been taken straight from the demo tapes, and because of this i feel they should have become b-sides. I feel that they are in a half way house, they've first of all tried to please the old school fans, yet at the same time tried to please those who loved J.E.E.P and the end result is just an average record.
Worth a listen but not worth owning is my verdict.
Go on Kelly, give us another Performance and cocktails
