Customer Review

on 12 November 2001
Having heard mixed reviews of Graham's solo work, I decided to give this album a go, as many have said "if you liked 13, you'll like this". I can safely say that this is better than 13, and probably about on par with Blur's album "Blur". Whilst "Empty Word" is the best track on this album, I can't help feeling it should have been placed in the middle of the album. To open with such a great track usually means the rest of the album isn't up to much (see Reef's album "Getaway"). Fortunately, Graham manages on several occasions to get close to the quality of the opener. "Burn it Down" and "You Never Will Be" are both not far off, and whilst just about everything else could be described as "album tracks" in comparison, most could stand up as a single.
Many of the middle tracks will only appeal to fans of the two most recent Blur albums, and like 13, the best four tracks are at the start of this album. However, unlike 13, there aren't any dull droning noise tracks (see "Caramel" and "Trailerpark"), and the album as a whole fits together perfectly. My only problem with this album is the test card like sound at the end of the album. Other than that, this is brilliant stuff, and without doubt one of the top five albums this year.
