Customer Review

on 22 July 2006
Extremely raw, but well but together and well constructed, this is an excellent debut album.

When "...AYWKUbtTOD" was released, it was outrageous for it's time and largely ignored. It was only when the second album "Madonna" was released that started backtracking.

It's not quite an album of singles. The opening track "Richter Scale Madness" is still (in 2006) one of their finest achievements, being four minutes of utter, angry fury. I once emailed Conrad Keely asking what it was about, and he told me it was about killing all their old friends back at home when they moved to another city. It is awe inspiring. I could go on to write a full review for this one song, but I won't.

Other flickers of brilliance are "Fake Fake Eyes" and "Gargoyle Waiting". The record is difficult to listen to on first listen, and it's tracks like "Half of What" and "When We Begin to Steal" that are perhaps a bit weak, but overall an excellent album which was to hint reliably at great, great things to come.
