Review of Last of the English Roses Single by Pete Doherty

Review of Pete Doherty's single 'Last of the English Roses'

Everyone's favourite mockney urchin has returned, but with disappointingly standard fare. Pete revisits his own well-trodden ground of vaguely nostalgic sentiments: Kinks-style memories of a forgotten England, with a bit of rhyming slang thrown in for good measure. There's a girl in there somewhere as well, but it's all very fuzzy around the edges.

The problem is that it lacks the clarity and wit of Doherty's better songs to lift it above average. 'Last of the English Roses' seems to plod along without much energy and - like many of his contributions of late - sounds rather like he's nodding out to a backing track.

I aggree. Why do people feel the need to slag pete off? yeah he has had his problems and thats clear for all of us to see, but look at the rolling stones they have been on the stuff for years but no one talks of that? the beatles were high in their time but no one talks of that? even though i am a huge libertines fan and especially doherty fan i still wouldnt class him in their leagues however why cant we concentrate on what he does and thats making incredible music, his lyrics are poetry to the soul and he writes about thigs that matter to him. why cant people give him a chance?

i think this is ridiculous, pete has been working for a long time on this album and to get back out there, to have comments like this is just ridiculous it is not just one song which he is releasing it is a whole album and you cant just generalise it on one song which in my opinion is incredible he is solo now this is his work and keep it up pete its incerdilbe!
