The Bluetones make a slight return with their second album "Return to the last Chance Saloon;" and after the success of their debut release "Expecting to Fly," naturally, we wanted more of the same.

In all honesty the album falls short of Expecting to Fly, which was a hard act to follow in fairness. However it is not to be dismissed either.

It's something of a cliché to say that any debut album is a lifetime's work because it encapsulates everything that has happened in that person's life up to that point within one record; but when comparing the two albums, that is the impression you get.

So, putting aside "Expecting to Fly" and listening to this record with a fresh perspective is a helpful start, because then, it comes into its own.

It's a gentle start with "Tone Blooze" but none the worse for it. "Solomon Bites the Worm" and "If" are strong tracks which had a lot of commercial appeal in the 90s, while "Sleazy Bed Track" and "Sky Will Fall" are much gentler and reveal a softer side to the Bluetones' music.

"Down at the Reservoir" is an upbeat, sunny feeling track with a nice tempo and some familiar, but tried and true progressions; while "Heard You Were Dead" is a little more bassy and reminiscent of the opening track.

The concluding track "Broken Starr" is a good way to round things off possessing a finale-like feel to it.

All in all, a good comeback.
