Didn't even realize that the band James has a new album coming out. They were one of my fave bands of the early 90's. Will be interesting to hear some new material (lead singer, Tim Booth, has left the band )... Anyway, what does everyone think of James bassist Jim Glennie? His lines are beautifully melodic and take me to another world (sincerely evokes a dream landscape in my mind). Songs like "Dream Thrum" and "One of the Three" (I actually heard the intro of that song on some TV commercial--can't remember what LOL) are just breathtaking. Basically all the songs off Laid (oops am I allowed to say that word? ) are mystifying and melodic. Opinions?
