Phil Spector, originally contracted to produce Starsailor's second album, was, apparently, just too weird for the boys from Lancashire, who sent him home after two songs. What a dilemma, choosing between persevering with the troubled legend because his melodramatic pop sensibility mirrored theirs, or trying to follow up a million-selling debut on their own. But they've done a creditable job of the latter, producing an emotionally and musically literate 39 minutes.
