It seems that Pete’s star has dimmed a little over the last few years, in the eyes of the music journalists anyway (I think they were all hoping that he would die before he reached 28). Which means the media pressure and scrutiny is nowhere near as intense for the recording of this album, giving Doherty one less distraction. There’s still the fascinating Doherty lyrics, but it’s as if he has finally grown up and turning into the great singer songwriter he has been threatening to do for a considerable time.
