6/10 Phil Staff review, 18 February 2010
After years of hating the BJM, thinking they were total tosh, I finally gave in with 'My Bloody Underground' and thought they were pretty good. I started to see the fuss. Subsequent releases have been so so with the odd decent track here and there but let's say it's all been reasonably patchy.
The opener to 'Who Killed Sgt Pepper' starts off sounding like Transglobal Underground with it's early 90s ethnic beats. After that the fuzzy psyche rock reappears and hangs about until 'Lets Go Fucking Mental' where you can hear Anton has actually done this as he chants "Let's Go Fucking Mental" for far too long in his best cockney accent. This is what happens when you take too many drugs and drink too much booze in Iceland...
There are some interesting moments on the album and it really veers from style to style and never particularly stays in one place. Which is why on first listen this sounds like a compilation of lots of different bands...either that it's multiple personalities all shining through. Actually it sounds a bit like every period of Primal Scream on one album. It's an album which falls somewhere in between ambition and ridiculousness. I'm unsure...
