The Outsider

I've had to reappraise this album recently.

When I first heard it, I thought that it was ok, not being what I was expecting from Josh Davies. I played it a couple of times and duly forgot about it.

However, recently I couldn't get This Time out of my head and so decided to stick the album on again and give it another listen. What I thought was an okay listen actually turns out to be a brilliant album which sounds incredibly fresh to these ears.

DJ Shadow - This Time (I'm Gonna Try It My Way)

DJ Shadow - Broken Levee Blues

think I mentioned once before about my liking of This Time:
the mix of soul and Shadow: {before Ronson}
Broken Levee Blues is a superb track:
reminds me of Durutti Column, Blue Period on the Sex & Death album:
{I'm lucky to have a print of the Paul Insect artwork from the Outsider in my lounge: signed by Insect & Deej}

I like the idea of the artwork in the lounge.
