I had never come across this artist before, but apparently he has performed with Ocean Colour Scene in the past. The album features a new version of their song Old Pair of Jeans which he wrote and was on their Saturday album.

The first song Hole in the Road could even be a Robbie Williams song, it deserves to be heard by the majority not the minority. Drift Away is one of the best tracks on the album for me, it has the jaunty carefree attitude of Gilbert O Sullivan's track Clair. It sounds a timeless track with a great lyric. In fact even Ocean Colour Scene could do a great version of this track, it has a whistle part on the song which every milkman in the land should be whistling.

Fool No More and Baby Blue are tracks that will be appreciated by fans of The Charlatans and of course Ocean Colour Scene. The version of Old Pair of Jeans included here does not sound that different from the original version.

There is plenty to like on this commendable album.
