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 .....
