I'm a sucker for trainwrecks and I've always been somewhat of a Pete Doherty fan, and it looks like Pete is headed for a crazy colision with "Last of the English Roses," the first single from his solo album Grace/Wastelands. NME has described Doherty's album as "Gorillaz-esque" in its "atmospheric mix of acoustic guitar and strings." JP reports that the first single, "like most of the tracks on the album...Â features Blur guitarist Graham Coxon on guitar."
I can feel a bit of early Gorillaz on this song, not much, but it's there. The song is mostly Pete Doherty though. So far, I like this song better than Babyshambles last album, Shotter's Nation.
