  • Summary: The solo career of Blur guitarist Graham Coxon takes on a bit more importance now if you believe the rumors that he has left that successful Britpop group for good. This is his fourth solo disc.

  1. 'Kiss...' operates on a level of perversity, honesty and originality that blows most bands out of the water.

    Finally finding a palatable singing voice, too, the musical acuity shown here still places him very much in front of guitar-hero peers like John Squire and Bernard Butler. [Dec 2002, p.129]

    The album's real trump card is its abiding sense of goggle-eyed imagination. [Nov 2002, p.98]
  4. Only the relatively jolly Escape Song is worth excavating from the morass. [Nov 2002, p.97]

    Graham Coxon is the best song writer in the world and everyone else is crap. except Damon. Blur would have been perfect if graham wrote all the songs... Expand

    jumps all over the place - from blues to acoustic to downright abusive - but somehow it all fits pretty well. not great, but very enjoyable.
