A True Classic,
By A Customer
This review is from: Laid (2001 Reissue) (Audio CD)
When LAID came out in '93, not only was it totally different from what people expected of James, but it was also one a few classic albums the '90s produced. It was such hailed at the time by the astute music papers, although sales were rather disappointing compare to previous records.
Listening to this record today, reveals why it sounded like a classic back then. Songs like "Five-O", "Sometimes", "Out To Get You", and "P.S" are, to use an over used term, absolutely timeless. Brian Eno's production is perfect. Every song has a life of it's own. This was the best that James got, they knew it and it was a shame the rest of the world didn't catch on. It's long over due for recieving the title, Classic.
