Product Description


The first Cribs record to feature the lead guitar playing of former Smith Johnny Marr alongside the three redoubtable Jarman brothers, Ignore The Ignorant balances a slightly fuller sound with the familiar choppy riffs and rabble-rousing choruses of old. To suggest the Cribs’ fourth long-player has brought a new maturity to their sound would be to threaten the worst--after all, a good deal of the appeal of songs like "We Were Aborted" and the souped-up Sonic Youth clatter of "City Of Bugs" lies in their wide-eyed juvenilia and barely-contained bursts of guitar dissonance. But it’s true that some of the finest moments here find The Cribs showing off a newly nuanced, reflective side. "Last Year’s Snow" is a wistful number that sees a cracked-voiced Ryan Jarman imploring "I want to think you won’t/Remember me like last year’s snow" over a sparkling Marr lead, while the title track balances romping drums and reverb-soaked guitars with a passionate and heartfelt anti-racist message that sees the band nail their colours to the mast with style. ––Louis Pattison

5.0 out of 5 stars Johnny Marr joined the Cribs 7 Sep 2009
By J. P. Ellison VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
So Johnny Marr joined the Cribs, and they've all been working on an album for a year. That's kind of bizarre, right? And It's not a bad album. In fact, it's quite good. But the thing is, it's not as 'Cribs' as it should be.

It's not as passionate as previous outings, not as rock and roll, not as violent or dirty. This is a record that asks for your attention, rather than demands it. There's less in the way of shouting from the Jarmans, the lead guitar seems a little bit quieter than normal, and 'that' Marr rhythm can certainly be felt, sometimes for better (Ignore the Ignorant), and sometimes for the worse (Last Years Snow).

But don't let that put you off. 'Ignore the Ignorant' is another solid record from the Cribs, dotted with excellent moments. There's some lovely sing-along fodder (We Were Aborted, Cheat on Me, Nothing), a few songs that are just plain good (City of Bugs, Stick to Yr Guns, Victim of Mass Production), and, importantly, not too much in the way of filler (Again, Last Years Snow is probably the weakest track on the record).

So all in all, another accomplished album from the Wakefield bunch. But I get the feeling the whole thing will be much better in the flesh, as I shall find out at Leeds Academy in a few weeks time!
