5.0 out of 5 stars
Absurd genius, 11 April 2006
this is one of the most exciting, inventive and catchy records i've heard from a british band in years, it goes against the grain of the current crop of po-faced young bands taking themselmes far too seriously and creating banal unimaginative rubbish for music.
They genuinely come across as if they don't care what people think and even heavily critique their own work in the music press, which is a refreshing attitude to see. There maybe accusations of style over content but there is no pretention and ego at play here, just great music, and it is great, even if the band don't always agree :)
It's a real shame they have decided to move on to doing new things as I believe that their future recordings would have more than exceded everyone expectations.
Also, I don't normally review records, but this is a recent personal favourite and I find it terrible that one person is allowed to rate this album with one star on multiple occasions, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but sparky mark keeps leaving his opinion and inturn unfairly reducing this albums star rating, his additional 'reviews' should be deleted!!
