It's a short album when you subtract the 7 fillerish tracks (1, 3, 8, 11, 12, 16, 17) but it still leaves a 10 track pop masterpiece that strikes a perfect balance between eclecticism and immediate melodic hooks, programmed beats and rock guitar. There seems to a be a particular influence from The Rentals' album Seven More Minutes on a few tracks, most notably the profanity laden single It's A Brother Sister Thing. The album even uses samples, something I normally can't abide, to great effect, most notably on Cool It Now. It can't be overstated how adept or at least well produced the two main vocalists sound, Marc's hoarse semi-spoken style perfectly complimented by Sharon's girly croon. The lyrics perhaps remind you a few too many times that Len is a party band, but on The Royal Screwjob Marc offers some socially conscious affirmation of self-belief in pursuing your own vision "be lost, be strange, be what those other people won't do, you know you're right."
