I agree mostly. This is James's blatant stab for commercial superstardom, and it works... kinda. Shame no-one was interested in them in 1999.

I still think their best work is "Stutter". It's an anarchic earache and a work of desperate genius, despite the absence rousing torchlight anthems.

absence "of" I should say...


Yep, you could be right about Stutter. I love Laid, because I'd started to go off them at the start of the nineties, and Laid felt like a comeback as a well as a step forwards. One Man Clapping could have been extraordinary, but somehow didn't capture the live James at their late eighties best.
