4.0 out of 5 stars a flawed gem, 30 Aug. 2004
This review is from: King Size (Audio CD)
I love this album. I know one person who really doesn't like it. That's Martin Carr. Having met the guy, I told him how much I liked it, but he said that he was, rather than getting married, was heading towards a messy divorce. During this recording, he was smoking a lot of dope and not really connecting. If anything, the seeds of the band's demise were sewen here. But that doesn't stop Kingsize being touchingly wonderful. Jimmy Webb is God, Adieu Chloe Chloe, Blue Room in Archway, Free Huey. Ace stuff.
Having said that, it doesn't quite touch the peaks of the earlier more energetic work, and I still think that Giant Steps was Carr's crowning moment with the Radleys, just as his later work with Brave Captain goes even further. It would seem that ennui was really setting in, and perhaps the self-searching was beginning to turn into self-pity. So he stopped before it went really wrong.
Despite this, Carr seemed to find himseld with his solo work, and I can recommend Advertisements For Myself and GO With Yourself without reservation.
