5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible, 23 Aug 2005
The first listen of this album truly blew me away. The whole album is full of some of the most intelligent and funny (in a deep and clever way) phrases and political references you will ever hear. There are lots of catchy, strong melodies that you will be humming for days after listening to the songs they come from - especially those of the brilliant opener "Bread and Circuses", obvious standout track "After the Rush Hour", and my personal favourites "To Whom it May Concern", and "Living the Dream", which is an insightful, at times stunningly genuine view into vocalist Frank Turner's feelings about his band and performing shows. All in all, one of the best albums of 2005.

The PS2 controller is small, fiddly and, overall, pretty rubbish. The Xbox controller is more comfortable, but twice the size it needs to be. The GameCube one, however, balances everything perfectly. It's not too bulky, but not too small either. It shaped so that it fits perfectly into your hands really comfortably, and all the buttons are well spaced out so that while you don't have to stretch across it in order to reach all the buttons, you are unlikely to accidently press 2 at once.

I love all the songs on this album, although it only lasts 25 minutes. 10 songs sounds like a reasonably sized album, however the fact that most of the songs are under 3 minutes long, means that however much you love the music, you can't help feeling that there isnt nearly as much here as you would like. The songs all triumph for me, mostly quite fast (apart from the exceedingly slow "Presidential Wave") and they all have memorable tunes, sung by brilliant vocalist Guy McKnight, whose bizzare but excellent voice make The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster possibly the most original band ever. It's probably true that i wouldn't have noticed them if it wasn't for their ludicrously long (not to… Read more
