.....there you go I thought I'd be controversial. It's such a shame that Tubthumping has made Chumbawamba an anathema. They have so much to offer. This album works on several levels, but even without the political aspect it's a great pop album, the melodies are exquisite at times (at times quite Crosby,Stills and Nash), especially when they are intertwined with old folk song samples (far better employed than Moby did with blues songs for Play). Always the messages on contemporary issues (if only this had been recorded during the firefighter strike) which, even if you don't agree with them, are consistent, something which the media or government have never achieved. How's about releasing the songs that were sampled on one album? This has now overtaken Anarchy as my favourite Chumba album.

One of the most admirable qualities of Chumbawamba is that along with few other brits they tell it like it is. I class them amongst the real 'politicians' and 'class warriors'; As a real yorkshire lass, brought up as a miners daughter who lived amongst the miners in the strike i have an innate anger against authority. Therefore for me, for many years, they have been my heroes, they have understood. This album, more than any of the many albums they have made truly reflects modern working class issues and combines their incredibly clever sampling, writing, angry, demanding, experimenting, developing interest in the cross over world of folk music with dance. To be danced to at a fesival. Miss it and you miss what is going on in your own back yard.

Aah, Chumbawamba are back. Politically incorrect, frightfully offensive to the establishment and totally in yer face.
I've always liked Chumbawamba. I don't always agree with everything that they say but at least they have the guts to say it. That said, I do agree with most of it and I do find them entertaining and stimulating. The point is that you don't have to agree with them 100% of the time, I'm sure they wouldn't expect you to. As long as the issues are kept alive that is probably enough.
But whats this... the new album is slightly different. Not so in yer face after all. Well written songs delivered cleverly and tunefully, but a little more reflectively and subtely than usual.
The vocals are superb, the tunes beautifully crafted from the lilting pop melody of 'Salt Fare, North Sea' to the disjointed reggae fuelled ditty 'Song For Len Shackleton', this is the Chumbas at their very best.
The messages are as important as ever and are still there but, could it be that 'Home With Me' is about as close to a love song as Chumbawamba have been for a while.
Lets hope this wins them the new fans they richly deserve. It is a VERY VERY good lp this one. Oh, and relax, your mother still won't like them .....
