Advantages: Thoughtful lyrics
Disadvantages: The quality of the tunes is mixed.

Songs From the Other Side Ah, the Charlies. They're mostly famous for just being Britpop survivors and for that last "let's get sexxy" LP, Wonderland, which I didn't exactly do back flips for but was pretty great nonetheless. But there's a lot more to ...
