(Written partially in response to the one-star review of the single)
If you can grasp the idea that collaborators are not clones of each other, then you'll appreciate the direction Jonny Stephens has gone on his own, post-Meat Beat Manifesto. After listening to this album, you'll be able to turn back through the MBM catalog to hear Jonny's influences on Jack's hard-edged songs. The other reviewer who didn't like this because it didn't sound like MBM is a fool. These hand-crafted songs are cleverly written and painstakingly arranged. Ignore the "Former MBM" sticker and let Jonny sing for himself.
