Apologies for the late review of this Album. I decided to purchase the latest release by The Courteeners on vinyl and let’s just say it wasn’t delivered when it was supposed to have been. Rather than pillage another review I decided to wait. And so…
ANNA is the third release by The Courteeners. A more produced sound takes nothing away from the upbeat tracks, and clever lyrics even had me snorting with laughter at one point. The opening track “Are you in love with a notion” is by far the strongest on the album …
“You told Deborah that he is the one, you’re going to quit Debenhams, Elope and get married in the sun”

The raw nature of St Jude is there in places but this is a more polished album. It’s not “Pipe and Slippers” music but is the sort of album that wouldn’t seem out of place as background music at a trendy London bar.
Was the extra money I spent on the vinyl copy worth it? Probably not!
Is this a good album? Yes. Not bad at all
