Babyshambles, ‘The Blinding EP’ (Capitol)

Between drug busts and court appearances, Pete Doherty somehow found time for this likably messy five-track sequel to his quartet’s 2005 debut album. Despite the noisy, overheated production, which tries to make Babyshambles sound like tough guys, or at least Arctic Monkeys, Doherty’s slack, go-with-the-flow persona rules (in contrast to the pissed-off vibe of Dirty Pretty Things, the other ex-Libertines band, led by Carl Barât). If these bleary rockers feel unfinished, at least they’re not the flaming disaster that you probably expected.
