Spectacular album with a unique blend of genres and influences
As a Libertines fan, my curiosity was sparked as soon as I heard that Pete Doherty had released a solo album. I expected it to similar to Libertines or Babyshambles music but it was actually quite different. This album is not fast paced and reminicent of 70's punk like his previous work but instead seems to have a bit of folk influence as well jazz influence. Despite this, I don't think I could classify it into any specific genre. And although this sounds very different than Pete's previous work it still feels like his style. The lyrics are soulful and beautifully poetic.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Overall, this album is great. The only complaint I could give is that Pete's handwriting is impossible to read in the liner notes. Other than that, I completely recommend this album. But I would like to add that you should keep an open mind upon your first listen. It took me a few listens to adjust to the album because it is so different and unique. Now it is one of my most listened to albums.
