Two weeks before it's due to hit the shops, the Babyshambles new album, Down In Albion, has surfaced on the filesharing networks; and the reactions aren't entirely flattering, even amongst the diehard Pete fans.

Coffe and Ice snorts with laughter through some of the songs, and concludes:

Albion annoys me in it's non acoustic form. I refuse to listen to it again, thanks. WTF is up with the beginning, anyway?

... When are the Libs reforming again?

*puts on Up The Bracket*

Meanwhile, Suburban Ennui puts the problem down to there just being too much stuff:

I just downloaded the new Babyshambles album, "Down In Albion", and it runs for more than an hour. And, of course, it's patchy as hell. Cutting a minute or so off a few of the songs, and culling the running order down to 37 minute/10 tracks would have made for a lean, tight and brilliant album. As it stands, there's a duet with Kate Moss (of course why not?) and a reagae song sung by some guy Pete met "inside".

I don't know about you, but I can't wait. Oh, hang on, you don't have to, do you?
