Format: Audio CD
After the success (of sorts) of their last album, "Achtung Bono" - the first since their indie days of jangly guitars, wasp-buzz synth & "All I Want For Christmas Is A Dukla Prague Away Kit" to get mainstream acclaim (ie. "The Guardian", etc. remembered they existed)- it was always going to be a hard act for Voldermort lookalike Nigel Blackwell & his cohorts to follow.

Matters were not helped by such distractions as one so-called fan who thought she'd a God given right to sell bootlegs of any unreleased material on the net (said fan is now "helping the police with their enquiries", after discovering ripping off HMHB is one thing, ripping off the BBC with their heavy duty legal team is quite another...); and niggles over a still unreleased compilation of promo videos & live clips.

As such, one or two tracks have the feel of being rushed out to get the album ready for the deadline or been altered for the sake of sounding different to the bootlegged versions, in particular "Blue Badge Abuser" & "Totnes Bickering Fair", which sound like demos.

The album also suffers from its running order somewhat, and takes a few more listens than normal, although several tracks jump out as favourites from the outset, such as the singalong "Bad Losers On Yahoo Chess", "On The Roids" (containing the knockout line "His paranoia is absurd - 'Are you THINKING about my bird?') & "Petty Sessions" (the latter being the Hokey Cokey set to atypical Biccie lyrical silliness - "I stick my big nose in - when I go out...I like an altercation with a member of staff - 'That was a £10 note!'").

I've been an on and off Half Man Half Biscuit fan for a long time but have found my interest waning once or twice over the past few years. This, however, is superb and is by far the best thing they've done probably since 'This Leaden Pall' - the songs are catchy all the way through - the band sound alive and angry and Nigel Blackwell has never sounded more pissed off. Its brilliant. The songs find their way into your head and spin around there for days. Its the lyrics that set HMHB apart from almost any other band in history. They are constantly incisive, at times wistful and always very very funny. The more you play it the more classic lines appear seemingly out of nowhere - such as "If you look carefully in the background to The Scream, the couple on the bridge are both Robson Green"

...more times at the genius lyrics of National Shite Day than I have in the entire history of ITV's comedy output. As others have said, almost everything they've done is wonderful, literally belly-laugh out loud at times but this is in no way a comedy band. This is seriously good (Fall-like) music, massively enhanced if you take a bit of time to listen to the lyrics. There's a fantastic site where you can see them all...The Half Man Half Biscuit Lyrics Project.

\csi \ambleside. My second HMHB album. It lives up to my expectations. The witty narratives underpinning the deceptively basic guitar and drum music. Don't be fooled by the music. It may sound like any old pub band but lisen to the lyrics - aural gold.
