      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Dance bod-about-town Mark Pember has done the expected and gathered himself a collective of like-minded musicians for the purposes of recording some real music. BUT! be glad he did, for this isn't the soulless noodling that such an enterprise often brings. Organ are authentic, drums more played than programmed, but we never venture into the 'worthy muso' trap. Avenue A draw from a pool of three utterly different vocalists. Imogen Andrews, whose opening 'Pick Up the Pieces' is a smooth and smoky treat. Holly Golightly who brings a trashy garage rock feel to numbers like 'Nothing You Can Say'. And Lambchop's head honcho Kurt Wagner makes the uptight white-boy funk of 'Give Off' one of the choice cuts on this album. Other highlights are the David Holmes-y "End Of You", or the lounged-up rock'n'roll of "Run Cold", which sounds like lizard-skin boots on the worn floor of a theme diner. So, the mood-needle on 'Never the Less' swings all over the shop, but it's part of the laid-back easy-going charm that makes the album a worthwhile listen.
