  1.  Different...but still good!

    Posted: 

    Contrary to the rather harsh one star review below, this is actually quite an accomplished effort from Graham Coxon. While I agree that track Caspian Sea is a little ambitious, the album still offers enough for Graham Coxon fans.
    If you are expecting more songs in the same vein as those on Love Travels at Illegal Speeds and Happiness in Magazines, you'll be disappointed as Coxon goes in a different direction on this album.
    He focuses on using finger plucking melodies as the main base of most of the songs here, and is as far away from tunes such as Freakin' Out and Standing On My Own Again as possible. To be able to pick up such a skill as complex as finger plucking (not something that is evident in his earlier works, or that of Blurs) and make it work is a credit to his talent.
    What it does confirm to the listener is that Coxon is a master of the guitar, and one of the finest of his generation. A solid effort.
