    'This is a Song and These Are the Words'

    What's wrong with a little tongue-in-cheek humour? The brilliance of 'Alias' motivated me to revisit this album having dismissed it way too quickly first time around. It really is rather good.

  1. It's still heavy on the harmonies and hummable choruses, of course, and does meander into happy-clappy, round-the-campfire territory too often for those of us with a low saccharine threshold.
  2. Lopping off about twenty minutes would have improved things no end, but mostly it needs focus - focus that would probably have come with time.
  3. There are too many tracks on here that seem unfinished in a way, content to noodle around for far too long without making too much of an impression.
