Art Brut 1 Satan 0,
This review is from: Art Brut Vrs Satan (Audio CD)
Eddie Argos and co are back with a new album 'Art Brut Vs satan'. Although it lacks the killer punch of some of the bands earlier work, it is still far more interesting that what some other bands are currently producing. Frank Black (The Pixies) produced this and to be honest a lot of his work gets lost and goes largely un-noticed. First single 'Alcoholics Unanimous' hits the spot instantly and sounds like classic Art Brut. What follows takes time to get used to and nothing really jumps out and grabs you. However, after a few listens the whole thing starts to work its magic. The absolute highlight of the album for me is the final track 'Mysterious Bruises' which might just be the best thing that Art Brut have ever produced, stunning. On the whole this is great, maybe not as catchy as the first 2 albums, but great all the same.
