Tuck into some James why don’t you? Mercury are launching a series of reissues of the britpoppish band’s albums, and Pleased To Meet You is the last album they released before their initial hiatus circa 2001. Look carefully at the cover art, which is a composite image of all the members of the band compressed into one face… James himself if you will. Double LP reissue.

7/10 Jack Customer review, 27th December 2017
James' eleventh studio album, their last one with frontman Tim Booth, is, well...it's okay. Just okay. There are two standout tracks: "Give It Away" is a charming three-minute number - great melody, nice lyrics ("You have so many friends cheering you along/Don't turn a deaf ear to their song"), simply James doing what they do best. Overall, while Pleased To Meet You is worth listening to, it always leaves me longing for 1999's sublime "Millionaires". Still, it's a decent if inconsistent effort from the underrated Manchester septet.
