The Charlatans made a “euphoric” return to their spiritual home of Northwich, Cheshire, England earlier this year, The Guardian reported. In a review of their performance, Dave Simpson praised the “sweetly melodic” “Totally Eclipsing.”
“Since they were last here, they have endured the deaths of two members, an imprisonment and a nervous breakdown, but they have emerged as an indefatigable unit, musically and personally solid. Songs such as the thunderous One to Another hinge on the musical collisions between guitarist Mark Collins and Hammond organist Tony Rogers and the fearsome, almost northern soul rhythm section of bassist Martin Blunt and former Verve drummer Pete Salisbury,” the review said.
