Does it Rock: Babyshambles, "Nothing Comes to Nothing"

I'll admit that I'm not overly familiar with the Pete Doherty songbook... The Libertines are one of those bands that I "get," and appeals to me, but I want to like a bit more than I do. That said, the songs I've heard off this Babyshambles album have really hit the spot for me. It's like Vampire Weekend's instruments being played by Cage the Elephant, or Joe Strummer covering the Gin Blossoms (or... Pete Doherty covering the Gin Blossoms.) It's not overly sophisticated stuff, power-pop chords and a real messy delivery. Absorbing stuff here. It rocks.
