Love - The Hustle First thing that strikes me is the production on this record. It's a little over the place at times. Sometimes it really hits the right spot in the likes of 'Love' and 'Booty Call' but then is lacking in 'Astronaut' and in 'Back of the Bus'. Maybe that's the quirk they were going for on this? In saying that I quite enjoyed this record. It's clearly just a singer and band kicking off their shoes and having some fun. Groovy basslines, funky beats, nice guitar playing and a bit of Harmonica.. can't complain really. There's a few filler tracks here that don't quite hit the spot but are nice to listen to without being memorable. First half much better than the second half. It's an easy going record and I would listen to this having a few beers in the garden. Highlights: Love Booty Call The Fishing Song Lowlights: Back of the Bus - fuck off. Bus was burned into my head for hours after it. I'll give it a 7/10 I sat out in the garden yesterday and listened to this with a beer. Started off good but it just didn't strike the same chord with me as the first few times listening. So I listened again this morning and I think I was being very generous with the 7/10 score. Some of it grates after a while. Sorry Howie!
