Down In Albion Album Tracklist

The best 'demo' you'll hear all year... | Reviewer: Blacky | 1/23/2006

Down In Albion, had it's release date pushed back and pushed back, and finally, it was in stores, it was quite obvious from the start that it was in no way going to emmulate anything that The Libertines ever did, but eitherway, Pete announced his return commercially with a deliberately disjointed album. A mixture of genres sweeps across the tracklist, and the quality ranges from absolutely stunning, to shockingly shite. This was always going to be, lyrically, a bitter album, Pete getting a chance to have a swipe at those who have tormented him recently, but he managed to stay clear of drug addictions and supermodels (barely). The album starts with La Belle et la Bete, with Kate Moss on backing vocals, and this is a terrible song, leaves you thinking, 'god this has got to get better' thankfully, it does. Fuck Forever is a superb 'up yours' to the world, Sticks and Stones a tremendous song, Killamangiro, Babyshambles 1st top 10 hit features also, but, without a doubt however, the ace of the pack is Albion, this masterpiece of an accousticlullaby reminds why we all fell in love with Pete in the first place. A potential 10 out of 10 album is drastically short of this due to the deliberate shambolism, but this is the best 'demo' you will hear all year. The album gives a look into the tragic life of a rock star who, in a world of cleancut pretty boybands, is just trying to do his won thing. Pete, we salute you.
