Life on the Road
Lennon. Bowie. Bush. Brent. Finally—somehow—Ricky Gervais’ most iconic character is handed his lifelong dream: an album of soft rock anthems swerving violently between hysterically earnest and hysterically offensive. Gervais absolutely knows his way around an irresistible melody—“Slough”, “Thank F*** It’s Friday" and “Electricity” (featuring a certain Coldplay frontman) have serious earworm potential. And The Office fans will be thrilled to discover a souped-up “Freelove Freeway” makes the cut.
