Like everyone else who reviewed this I'm a Luke Haines freak and completist since forever. Unlike - I think - the others I'm not from England, which made Off My Rocker... a little to much English heritage for me, thematically. This is a great comeback to intellectual form.
I'd give 21st Century Man four stars if it wasn't for Achtung Mutha. Many tracks on 21st are great, Our Man in Buenos Aires especially. Achtung Mutha is pure gold. The Great Brain Robbery of course presupposes that the listener is safe in the knowledge that were in good hands. As it is, it shows that Mr Haines really is a man for the 21st Century. Of course it isn't hit material. Greenwich Observatory on the other hand is, and it really is idiosyncratic to put such a strong song on the bonus.
The safe way to go would have been to make a single album of this, dropping The Great.. trilogy, and it would have been his most consistent album of many years. But that would have been less interesting, so get it while you can (and the remaining single album will be incomplete without Achtung Mutha).
