Shotter's Nation was the second album from never knowingly not wasted the Libertines co-frontman Pete 'Peter' Doherty under his Babyshambles moniker. It sees him collaborating with an unfathomably eclectic bunch of artists such as Kate Moss, Ian Brown and Bert Jansch and this is probably the only time you'll see those three in the same sentence. Not exactly the pinnacle of recorded music but at least he's alive I suppose.

8/10 Jack 9th February 2016I was really surprised by the cleaned up sound when I first heard this. Down in Albion was really muddy and took about a year for me to really enjoy it. This album hit me immediately. Doherty's writing is so personal that at times it's really creepy. Kate Moss is listed as a cowriter on four songs. The sound has a very mid 1960's sheen. On "UnBiloTitled", it seems as if Brian Jones was in the studio. Simply put, I can't believe someone so strung out as the media reports, could be so focused and delicate with these songs.
