Reseña de álbum

The run of James' albums and accompanying singles meant a fair few B-sides surfaced over the years — especially as the era of two-CD singles took hold in the U.K. — and Ultra cherry picks them for a reasonable if uneven look at the band's less well-known moments. Aside from two covers — a starts-okay-then-gets-utterly-horrible version of the Velvet Underground's "Sunday Morning" and a sturdy enough radio session take on Iggy Pop's "China Girl" — it's all originals, arranged in no particular order, from 1990 to 1999. Given that Wah Wah was more the portrait of the band at work in studio than anything else, the more finished efforts here straddle the line between doing whatever for the sake of it and trying to polish up something. A few songs are bemusing efforts by the band to stay in touch with the times (thus opening cut "Gone Too Far," which shows James jumping on the jungle bandwagon a couple of years too late), but sometimes the blend of styles actually becomes its own particular strength. Secret highlights do pop up — the jaunty swing and heavy flange of "Honest Pleasure," the minimal "Undertaker" (at least at the start) and "Still Alive," both of which very much forecast where the band would end up with Laid, and the rich, Neu!-tinged Krautrock chug of "Chunny Pops." One of the more surprising and entrancing efforts, "I Defeat," features Sinéad O'Connor on a country-influenced, downbeat note that's a rare gem. In the end this is obviously really only for the must-have-it-all James fan, or at least the one who wants all these songs in one place and lacks a CD burner, but as it stands it's still an enjoyable listen even for a more casual listener.

Aunque James, la banda de uber-pop de Manchester, publicó álbumes en los 80 (y ya existían desde 1981), no fue hasta la siguiente década que la banda consiguió verdadera fama. Liderado por la potente voz de Tim Booth y un arsenal de letras reflexivas e intelectuales, el grupo de cinco miembros consiguió una serie de éxitos a ambos lados del Atlántico a principios de los 90, alcanzando la cima de su fama con el pícaro y alegre al estilo tirolés “Laid”, álbum clave de la MTV y sensacional éxito del...
