    It's hardly a treasure trove of unreleased material but the tape hiss, traffic noise and acoustic arrangements make it an invitingly slackerish alternative.

    It might be better to think of Hotel Sessions as a surviving collection of demos and rarities rather than a planned project. Handled in this way, the album begins to exude at least some charm.
  5. All we learn from these wispy solo offerings is that Lemonheads songs are not improved by persistent cassette hiss and background noise.

    If Hotel Sessions had a layer of banished songs or the context of label-drama, that would be one thing, but as it stands it's a very boring, commonplace, and unneeded part of music-biz procedural that never needed the light of day.
