I was so chuffed to get my hands on this as I thought the band had broken up. When I bought their second album I didn't like it as much as their first for a while, and this one is going to grow too. There are a range of influences on here, but as ever it is the McClure voice that gets you. As an old rocker, I have always liked people who could write lyrics and it is great to hear so many bands now that make the lyrics matter - the Arctics, Elbow et al - and this guy does it as well as anyone. The only thing I can't understand about this band is why they are not huge. I've seen them live a few times and they are brilliant. Last time I saw them was 2 days after seeing Muse who are acclaimed the greatest live band in the world or something like. Muse are polished and this bloke is as rough as a badger's whatsit, but he can really kick. Sort of a modern day Ian Dury. Great band and an album that needs adding to any good rock collection.
