Best Wishes NME 14/2/98

That important, difficult 'statement' of a second single in full, then. 'Best Wishes' sounds like the optimistic, 'Sun breaks through the storm clouds' final track of a Pink Floyd 'The Wall'-style concept album journey through the life, loves, fears and loathing of a miserable rock star. All blissy 'Phew, things aren't so bad as they seemed when I had my last panic attack' vibes and abstract seasons of mellow indulgence. And just to show it all means something quite, you know, big, it builds up to crescendos of noise, choirs of angels, and echoes of 'Jerusalem' as the protagonist presumably comes to terms with the torture of a public school upbringing. When of course, we know it's just the Prozac kicking in.
