5.0 out of 5 stars Pleased to Meet You, 31 Jan. 2003
This review is from: Pleased To Meet You (Audio CD)
I am not joking when I say this is James' best album. This is no to say the others are bad (except Stutter, which I hate with a vengeance) but this is truly great. There are only two brilliant songs in there- the haunting 'Pleased to meet you' and the irresistible 'Getting Away with It' but it is the album construction that really hit me.
I have always been rather sceptical of the way james put together their albums- i feel that Walking the Ghost is misplaced in Gold Mother and Laid should begin with a punchier track than Out to Get You, but Pleased to Meet You is a testament to what can be achieved. If you just whack the cd straight in and listen to it, you could probably get to about track 7 (when the style begins to change) before you realise the track has changed. The songs maintain their individual identity but the album hangs together unbelievably well. Definitely worth buying, especially since its Tim Booth's last album with the band (except the live one- Getting Away with it...live, which is also excellent). His vocals aren't as pronounced as on, say, Seven, but its still a great finale to a great 20 years. Worth whatever they'll sell it to you for.
