Album Review: James – Living In Extraordinary Times

Posted on 30 Jul 2018 at 9:45am

The music industry’s announcement of a National Album Day recently divided opinion.

An initiative which BPI supremo Jeff Taylor said underlined, ‘the concept of the album as a body of work that expresses a narrative or an artist’s creative vision…remains as relevant and inspiring as ever’, the pros and cons were soon publicly being weighed up.

Those arguing with Taylor might point out that any attempt to breathe life into the album in this age of streaming and playlists simply represents another way to flog the same dead, multi-formatted horse, but if you look hard there are still just about enough performers to make his idea partially true – and James are undoubtedly one of them.

This being true, the neutral observer might claim both media and band are still locked in a constant battle for continued relevancy, not least when the latter in their earliest incarnations were contemporaries of Yazoo and The Teardrop Explodes.

Defiant, their answer came first earlier this year with the release of the Better Than That EP, and the response is now completed with Living In Extraordinary Times, their 15th album and one that represents another chapter in a career followed by a devotional army of fans.
