Ventura’ a The Streets tribute song is a great example of this, a narrative of a luckless youth who suffers more abuse than alcohol on a Friday night. ‘Can’t Stand It’ takes a bitter walk down the well trodden path of one night stands in one of the electronica based offerings. The experiment intriguingly extends to adopting a 13 era Blur sound in ‘Gothenburg’.
The most impressive thing about this album is the authenticity of it, as Davey Woodhead is more qualified that a lot of musicians who comment on the mundane nature of life in slow lane because he still does the boring low life jobs. The characters and situations portrayed through experimental medium could be happening anywhere in this country. An album full of life loathing lyrics is usually very hard to take, but when it comes with such variety it makes it all the more compelling.
