SAINTS, THE: Nothing Is Straight in My House: CD

Yeah, it’s not (I’m) Stranded. Yeah, it’s not Eternally Yours. Yeah, there’s only one original member. But it’s still Chris Bailey, and he still sounds like an eighteen-year-old spending his paycheck on whiskey and cigarettes. The music is fine; it’s not gonna burn your eyebrows off, but it’s pretty good. To me, though, he’s in a league with Joe Strummer and Phil Lynott—his voice is so good that he could sing over pretty much anything and I’d probably like it. I mean, this is the guy who sang “Messin’ with the Kid.” Cut him some slack.
