You Talk

No-one could ever charge Doherty for playing his cards close to his chest, but a slurred line like, “Oh well, I never said it was clever/I just like getting leathered” rather gambles with the few remaining scraps of Babyshambles’ mystique (oh, come on, whether you love ‘Shotters Nation’ or not, there’s no denying that Doherty comes on more like an amusing vagrant than an Albion prince these days). Musically, ‘You Talk’ holds it together quite nicely: jangling, cutie-flavoured indie-pop with a surprising lightness of touch and some entertaining rattles of cowbell. Back from the brink once more, then.
