Each track showcases the remarkable talent of Nic and his unnerving ability to twist his classic influences into a contemporary album of finely crafted pop moments. Recalling the early to mid sixties and the halcyon days of British pop music before trousers flared and acid was dropped, the tracks have a rare innocence and beauty. And the mix of styles all fit together seamlessly - the pissed-off stomp of opener "I Can't Stand It" ("You've burned your last chance honey/I'm not gonna hang around!") sits nicely alongside the wistful Merseybeat of "Too Long For Her" and the mid-tempo, dancehall feel of "The Finishing Touch." A cover of the Leiber/Butler song, "Down Home Girl" (also covered by The Rolling Stones among others) is downright sassy. The U.S. release also includes a storming rendition of Chuck Berry's "I Want To Be Your Driver."
