Review this album
Nov 25, 2016Borrell 1 epitomises something. There is a statement, deep within these lazily cascading strains of faux-reggae, these seemingly jolly avenues of piss-weak folk. There's a message here. I don't think Johnny is aware of the message. Nor do I think it was intentional.
But it's there.
It is, quite simply, a cry for help.
MojoAug 13, 2013As ever with Borrell, it's never less than weirdly, grippingly fascinating. [Sep 2013, p.90]
Q MagazineJul 25, 2013This is a ludicrously enjoyable record, shedding Razorlight's US-targeted bluster and awkwardly stalking that curious mid-70s musical patch where pub rock and glam shaded into punk. [Aug 2013, p.97
