This review is from: 13 (Audio CD)
The boys from Essex return with a rather good art-rock album that has a less commercial appeal.
First track "Tender" is very much in the mould of Spiritulized whilst "Bugman" is a more heavier track that will please the "Song 2" lovers. With Graham Coxon singing on "Coffee & TV" it offers a bit more than Damon's vocals. Other tracks like "Trailer Park" and "Mellow Song" give a few acoustics interests whilst "Trimm Trabb" and "Swamp Song" (Nothing like Oasis') give a heavier option. Final sing "No distance left to run" shows Damons emnotions laid bare as does much of the album. "Caramel" is a good example of the arty-music Blur have moved to since the Britpop explosion.
All in all a great album that is underrated by the public.
Fully worth 5 stars.
