I'm afraid the man is God......, 2 Nov. 2001
Let's be fair, no one is doing anything like Yorkshire's finest since Weller lost the plot after "Stanley Road". The supposed lyrical geniuses like Mr Gallagher and Mr Albarn can't measure up to a man whose managed to maintain the quality with the width, simply by staying on the outside of London town and the huge mansions. He hasn't been without his upsets, "Painting it Red" was one, but with this album PDH is back to his jaunty and cynical best. Pointing out your experiences and twisting them to a beat that has you humming the tune is this his forte. If you like your music to reflect your feelings at any given moment in your life and make you think while your tapping along then BUY THIS ALBUM! It deserves a lot better than it has got in terms of publicity. My own gauge is the amount of copies flying around Yorkshire right now.........
