James – Laid

31 08 2010

Listened: Wednesday August 11

Laid (the album) is a fondly remembered high school soundtrack. Laid (the song) was one of those I screamed along to with my friends, because of the catchy, naughty lyrics. Most of the rest of the album is actually quite mellow, though. Good for relaxing.

The songs are still quite excellent after all these years. The singer, Tim, has a beautiful voice. My guess is that the bassist listened to a lot of Joy Division.

I have no idea why they are wearing dresses and eating bananas on the cover. One of those 90s mysteries I suppose.
