PETER JACKSON’S debut is a lovely thing – even if it’s arguably a love letter to his musical heroes.
Jackson’s adoration of the Beach Boys and 70s guitar pop pioneers Big Star is audible throughout, but that doesn’t stop his album being a gorgeous piece of work. Bill Ryder-Jones is involved too which can only be a good thing, and fans of Teenage Fanclub and fellow Scousers The Boo Radleys should purchase forthwith.
