The Charlatans - Simpatico

Maybe i was late to post this album but anyway, i'm writing now.
Oasis, Dickie Ashcroft, Embrace and now this – Britpop refuses to pack its bags and leave. Unlike their peers, The Charlatans have always been prepared to try something different – witness Tim Burgess’ recent employment of falsetto on his patchy solo album ‘I Believe’.

This time, the Charlies explore ska (‘For Your Entertainment’) and Hard-Fi-goes-disco (‘When The Lights Go Out In London’) to decent effect. However, it’s at its best on the likes of ‘Blackened Blue Eyes’, which – with its driving pianos, pulsing drums and stoned vocals – is a cousin of their classic ‘One To Another’, while the harmonicadriven stomp of ‘City Of The Dead’ will bring the parka brigade out of the closet. ‘Simpatico’ then: not by any means a falsetto dawn.
