Methinks the last reviewer doth protest too much
on 21 August 2011
The negative review posted here is quite illuminating, but perhaps it might be worth spelling out that, generally speaking, Tories, any supporters of the depressingly large number of Nazi-styled "minority" political parties, toffs, Royalists, enthusiasts for the Countryside Alliance, warmongers and dictators probably aren't going to find Robb Johnson desperately appealing. On the contrary, anyone who feels even remotely concerned about the present malaise of Britain might find at least something on this album that resonates with them.
This collection of songs represents something of a snapshot of life in Britain in 2011. Robb gives his Boris "Bunter" Johnson an airing, "Noddy" Clegg gets a bit of a ticking-off and the serious, thoughtful material is contrasted with the more cabaret-ish jocular songs. "Little Vinnie Jones" has nothing whatsoever to do with Wimbledon FC, or Wimbledon in any respect, for that matter. I like the lyric in this song about wanting to be an artist but finding your ambitions somewhat thwarted by having only Poundland felt tip pens at your disposal! (For me, it was Crayola wax crayons, although that was before they introduced the 156 crayon bumper pack).
