A truly awesome album, Oliver Ackermann and his band are too good, his vocals are awesome, whole album is awesome. Buy this, now. Also at that price, including the MP3 download it doesn't get much better than this!

APTBS are back! This, their 3rd album isnt exactly breaking new territory but the band has a style and they work to it very well.
For the uninitiated, APTBS sound like a melting pot of Jesus And Mary Chain, The Cure, Joy Division and having a lobotomy done with a hacksaw. With extra FX pedals. I've seen them live and the noises that Oliver Ackerman makes with a guitar is amazing, it sounds like an army of guitarists. He really does things youve never heard from a guitar before. Add to this a throbbing, pulsing bass throb and some metronomic drums and you have something very special.
Play them loud. There is no other way.
