Shotter's Nation

Shotter's Nation by Babyshambles
Released: Oct 2007
Label: Parlophone UK
Somewhere between being arrested, dating and breaking up with Kate Moss, getting engaged to another model, pursuing his own modeling career and releasing a book of drug-addled musings, Pete Doherty recorded a second Babyshambles album. Much of Shotter's Nation sounds like Doherty's personality: erratic, sloppy and wistful, with moments of beauty (or clarity). "Delivery" is a catchy tribute to the Kinks -- complete with "You Really Got Me" hook -- but the real diamond in the rough is "Deft Left Hand," a charming song about one of the man's many loves. It's unclear which.
