It's a mixed bag for me this one. Some of the more experimental stuff grates but then the record completely absolves itself with some incredibly hooky bass-lines and riffs and several songs to die for.
I just spent the weekend in Wellington and restricted my purchases (with the utmost of restraint I must say!) to just four items. Now that's a minor miracle. I also realised while listening to this record that all of those bands/artists I recently acquired are quite closely linked to each other.
Along with last year's wonderful "Savage", this earlier release just ticks so many boxes. It's dark. It's heavy. It's impossibly catchy and it's possibly the most unfashionable record in my entire collection.
