I borrowed the album to listen to whilst I'm ill. It's really great.

The single Get Free could, in some ways, be a song from In Utero, in other ways it couldn't.

A lot of the other songs aren't that rock though, they're often quite pretty. Miserable, clever, he's clearly a great songwriter.

The closest I can get is that it's like a cross between Beck, Supergrass, The Beatles and Nirvana. In no particular order. I'm only on track 7 though, some other artists might appear by track 12.

Have you got to Highly Evolved yet? That is a bit In Utero ish.

I didn't know you were ill, get well soon.

Cheers. I just got crapper after the weekend. :(

Yeah, know what you mean, there are quite a lot of Beatles bits on songs.
