The Fear of Hardcore, 11 Aug. 2002
It seems to me that many people hate to admit liking this album. Personally I love it. Really, bar the title track, the sexual content isn't anymore vivid than in Different Class. Apart from the sluggish Seductive Barry all the tracks are appealing. I first got into the band through the We Love Life single The Trees and thought it could get no better. How wrong I was. The opening track The Fear is an instant favourite with its sinister lyrics upheld by an atmospheric backing track. Hardcore, Help The Aged and The Day After The Revolution are also standout tracks. Deep, dark and uncommercial maybe but really we wouldn't want it any other way.
