James must be doing something right; he's getting lots of praise in the comments underneath that Guardian article, which is a rarity on there! This story in particular made me go 'aww':

Quote:
Two years ago tomorrow my late dad, John, attended the Wales vs Australia Autumn International courtesy of JDB. My sister bumped into James a few times at music industry events, and he sent us his tickets for the big game when he found out Dad was suffering from terminal cancer and had never seen his beloved Wales play at the Millennium Stadium... After the game, he called Dad up and chatted to him and my Uncle Teifion like they were old pals. Our family has never forgotten his generosity. Not only an amazing musician and social commentator, but a genuinely class act.

James is a total love. What a beautiful thing to do.

Other than including Last Christmas at the expense of Motorcycle Emptiness and Tsunami over Tolerate, it's safe enough.

If I were to objectively choose 10 career-spanning choices for newcomers, it wouldn't be much different...

Motown Junk
You Love Us
Motorcycle Emptiness
From Despair to Where
La Tristesse Durera
Faster
A Design For Life
If Tou Tolerate This
The Masses Against the Classes
Your Love Alone is Not Enough
