Charlatans - Wonderland (2001) Retail CD
As Wonderland illustrates, consistency has never been one of The Charlatans' virtues. Their back catalogue includes one or two albums that sound like they were touched by the hand of the almighty-1997's Tellin' Stories, especially, is something of a classic-and several which struggle to offer a convincing case for their existence. Wonderland sadly falls firmly into the latter category. The tone is set by the opening track, "You're So Pretty--We're So Pretty", an extraordinarily annoying melding of INXS-style white-socked funk and the sort of mannered falsetto vocal that Mick Jagger was insistingmore… upon circa Tattoo You. Indeed, the unfathomable decision of singer Tim Burgess to venture outside his usual limited range is one of the principal deficiencies of Wonderland-it doesn't do single "Love Is The Key" or the otherwise engaging Primal Scream-ish shuffle "I Just Can't Get Over Losing You" any favours, either. There are a couple of points at which The Charlatans lock into the lolloping groove and lightness of touch that made Tellin' Stories such a great album, but these serve mostly as a reminder of what is missing. The Charlatans' Wonderland has been reached via a wrong turning. --Andrew Mueller
