About this item
Whatever you think of Johnny Borrell, there's no use in denying that he was born to do this. He's a natural, and though his New York / blighty street poetry is often cliched, the phrasing is perfect, the choruses brilliant, the playing super-tight and rocking. This is a bolder, better version of the debut album (hence the eponymous title) and whilst some of its references are mainstream (but good!) there's a drive and joie de vivre here that's hard to contain. A hit?!
