iTunes Review

A combination of two recent EPs, The Morning After the Night Before is a powerful collection of tunes from the British band who were once considered, back in the mid-‘90s, among the leading candidates to save rock ‘n’ roll. They’ve continued to make great music that steps away from the anthemic clatter of their early days. Their sound uses electronics strategically to great effect. The first half of this “double album” is a melancholy batch. “Tell Her I Said No” features a gorgeous melody with warm keyboards, a stuttering guitar and a groove that comes and goes with the wind. “Kalediscope” is a simple stroll of a tune, elegant in how the piano notes fill in behind the harmonies. “Rabbit Hole” punches up as a substantial pop song. “It’s Hot” begins the pick-me-up side of the band. “Ten Below” drives straight into the emergency lane with sirens howling. Tim Booth can’t escape the Morrissey comparisons, but he’s plenty tougher on an aggressive tune like “Shine.” It’s a great collection.

Another Strong Outing

I've been a fan of James for a long time. This is another really solid effort, these 2 combined EP's. Dust Motes is very moving and Make for This City is awesome sounding. Hey Ma was a great album as well. Check out the songs: Semaphore, Upside, and Of Monsters & Heroes & Men. Their Best of James cd is a must have also. My favorite James song of all time is Out to Get You, an amazing little known song stateside.

Great new JAMES music!

Great new album from the UK band James! The album has two parts and two moods - both of the them include some great songs and intense lyrics from Tim B. Favorites thus far are "Porcupine," "Crazy," "Tell Her I Said So" and "Lookaway." Fantastic.


this makes me happy :)

As one of the first groups to be dubbed "the next Smiths," James became an institution on the British alternative music scene during the '80s and '90s with their pleasant folk-pop. Early in their career, James were praised by their idol Morrissey, which turned out to be both a blessing and a curse. The group was pegged as second-rate Smiths, yet continued to tour and record, eventually gaining a sizable following. In the late '80s, James, like many of their British peers, became involved in the acid...
