Track Of The Day: James - Many Faces

Posted on the 18 August 2018 by Rw/ff @rwffmusic
Having formed back in 1982, and featuring members well into their 50s, Manchester indie legends James just keep on making great music. Their 13th LP 'Living In Extraordinary Times' is one of this treasured group's finest albums, a modern classic about the state of this world we currently live in, and how we are treating each other as human beings. Once it all becomes clear, and you get to the core of this album, you realize how hard it can hit.

This is especially true of the glorious 'Many Faces', where the message is spelt loud and clear: "there's only one human race, many faces, everybody belongs here". Set to acoustic guitar and mariachi-like horns before building itself up into a true anthem of unity and hope, it's classic James. Living proof that a bands best work isn't always from their younger days, and that age means experience, not being past your peak. Somehow, James just keep on hitting the targets and confounding expectations.
