Its a load of something, yes
on 14 October 2012
A poor album by a usually consistant band. It sounds nothing like their previous output, if you liked albums like Ecliptica you would think it was a totally different band.
We know they did it deliberately but everything from the meaningless title, through the cod glam rock of "S***load of Money", to the completely sprawling mess of the last track is a misfire. Chuck in the misplaced banjo's on "Cinderblox" and the Boy Band lyrics on "I have a right" and you have a real mish mash that just doesn't work on any track.
I am a big fan of this band but I struggle with all the positive reviews for this as it is just frankly poor and has none of their hallmark elements.
Its inventive and as ever the musicianship is good, but I can't see who it would appeal to. Maybe I would recommend it to people who didn't like them ??
