There aren't too many albums in my collection that I can listen to from start to finish without thinking there is a "duff" track or two thrown in just to get the thing overwith and on the shelf! But this is one of them (and I own a few!!)
The combination of Hunt and Hawley is truly a force to be reckoned with... even compared to the likes of Lennon & McCartney or Morrisey and Marr! Every song takes you on a journey to a place where, you might not actually want to go, but you go all the same and come out at the other end not knowing what's just happened but it felt so good you want more!!
The songs aren't pretty, or epic.... just brutally honest! Looking at life, their environment and interpersonal relationships in a manner of objectiveness that has only surfaced again recently with the arrival of the Arctic Monkeys!!
However, their fellow Sheffield outfit Arctic Monkeys could only be described as a "naughty postcard" in comparison with a band that have the eloquence, knowledge and downright honesty of Paxman, Darwin and Clarkson put together!!
Why do all the best bands never get the credit they deserve??
If I had one cd to listen to forever...... this would be it!!
