I really want this album but no way am I paying £11.99 for it. You can buy it elsewhere between £5 and £7. Sorry one star until its well and truly lowered in price.

Even better then 'carry on up the charts'

This album is a must have for all lovers of 'proper' music. This album is the best from the beatuiful south and the top songs in my opinion are (in order) Prettiest eyes, song for whoever, i'll sail this ship alone, a little time, my book and old red eyes is back. Great album!
