Mercury are launching a series of reissues of britpoppish band James’s albums, and here is their 1997 effort Whiplash, which was partially produced by no less than Brian Eno and contains ‘She’s A Star’, one of the band’s big hits. The songs veer between slight experimentalism and full synthy pop, with dabs of Eno ambience here and there. Double LP reissue.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 27th December 2017

Whiplash is perhaps James' strongest social critique. While the subject matter can be sad (or saddening)-- like a pleading mother earth (Greenpeace) or a harsh attack on what seems like a materialistic American culture that loses itself in the TV and the mall (Go to the Bank)-- this disc has elements of hope, unfortunately mixed with despair. It opens with a song urging its listeners, no matter how awful things may be, to keep holding on 'til tomorrow, but the album ends with the line "Blue Pastures fade away."
