The Faces’ 1973 valedictory effort was initially received in critical communities as something of a disappointment – a kind of hangover record following the vaulting heights of Long Player and A Nod Is As Good As A Wink … To A Blind Horse. Over the course of time, it has become the band’s defining work. Blues-inspired workouts like “Cindy Incidentally” and “Glad And Sorry” demonstrate that the Faces have lost nothing off their considerable fastball, while the caution to the wind fuck-around “Borstal Boys” almost dares punk rock to happen. Finally we have Lane’s ruminative title track at the album’s conclusion – a gorgeous and wry concession to youth as a kind of slow gathering death. “I wish I knew what I know now / When I was younger” may qualify as the greatest and most knowing final salvo line ever authored by a truly legendary band.
