4.0 out of 5 stars Watch where you next put your foot, 3 May 2006
This review is from: At War With the Mystics (Audio CD)
Good album; a step up from the over-rated, underwhelming "Yoshimi ..", the reputation of which hangs on the genius of 3 songs; but nowhere near the brilliance of their nineties masterpiece "Clouds Taste Metallic".

While the songs themselves are uniformly excellent(excepting the pointless instrumental) they are for the most part not served well by the production, which at its worst gives the songs a shrillness that does not lend this album, as a whole, to repeat listening. Due to this fact alone, the album will not stand the test of time .

On the plus side the melodies are strong and the lyrics range from frank to oblique and are almost always entertaining.

Standouts include ' It overtakes me...', 'The Sound of Failure..' and 'Goin' on'.
