"Remember me?" shouts Witter in entertaining Pistols meets The Who opener 'If The Music Don't Move Yer'. For the hits, we do remember them - not just because Witter sings that annoying mobile phone TV advert. But memories might fade after the ambition-lacking, potential ringtone treat that is 'If The Truth Be Told'.
With a new-found maturity on 'Laughter Lines' ("No need to shout/Time is running out"), the shuffling 'Feathers' and the Hollyoaks incidental music of 'Never Felt So Cold', perhaps even they sense the party's coming to an end. The tunes are still there, especially on the lovelorn, stylishly distorted 'Eyes Before' and the orchestral, Xfm-tastic single 'Cry For Help'. But still the best thing to say about 'Truth Be Told' is that it's Not Feeder.
