5.0 out of 5 stars "SUCH SWEET COMPULSION......, 26 Sept. 2012
This review is from: In the Belly of the Brazen Bull (Audio CD)
.....DOTH IN MUSIC LIE." (John Milton) This quote sums up the bedrock of the new Cribs offering "In The Belly Of The Bull" namely an overwhelming desire to listen to and enjoy the contrast between the melodic softening underbelly layered upon which is a more stringent driving rhythmic veneer.

Going since the early 2000's, this, but as yet not receiving the critical acclaim that is richly deserved, outfit from Wakefield make very good music, the keynotes of which are the high pitched and catchy guitar riffs and as good as vocalizations as you'll find anywhere.

It gets off to a brilliant start with "Glitters Like Gold", and is followed by the cacophonous, punchy "Come On, Be A No-One" which has a gut-busting bawly chorus. A riff filled few minutes is to be had with "Chi-Town", and "Back To The Bolthole", is another standout, providing 5 minutes of boisterous noise which pushes the boundaries of The Cribs previous musical ambitions. However, my album favorite is "Arena Rock Encore With Full Cast" during which I had to physically control the urge to turn off the room lights, illuminate my mobile phone and two handedly wave it above my head whilst swaying in time with this well crafted, melodious anthemic blockbuster.

This is the bands 5th album and demonstrates that their work has not suffered from the departure of the brilliant but brief stint of Johnny Marr. "In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull" (where did that title come from I wonder" is an impressive album and posts a clear message that The Cribs are determined to become Number One UK guitar band.
