Louder Than War – Review: James - Living in Extraordinary Times
We could argue that with the anger and frustration that’s being vented, it’s as though as they get older, James is channelling the spirit of punk, subverting expectations and forever doing everything on their own terms. The prominence of the percussion elevates this from the both what the band has done in the past and what most other bands are doing now, and Glennie’s bass is certainly getting stronger and infectious, adding even more to the grand sound and the impressive production of Charlie Andrews (Wolf Alice) and Beni Giles. Living in Extraordinary Times is a challenging album that may divide hard-core fans but will certainly stand the test of time.
