This is awesome! Seriously Pete Doherty always gets a lot of shit for being a lot of things, but on this album you gotta just let those things slide and listen to one great song after another. Too bad he ended this band and went in another direction with Babyshambles (although I heard they are reforming?) because this is some top notch garage-rock influenced London street music.
