9/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 11 February 2011

Ian Svenonius returns with a second installment of his Chain & The Gang project! Oh happy, happy day! Recorded with pretty much the same musicians and singers (this includes Brian Weber, Spencer Kelley, Arrington De Dionyso, Tara Jane ONeill and the mighty Joey Casio among many more) down at the legendary DUB NARCOTIC STUDIO by Mr. Calvin Johnson, 'Music's Not For Everyone' is another master piece chock full of Svenonius's sharp wit and amazing players. I'm really fond of the musicians on this record, I think they do an amazing job that oozes pure Olympia charm whilst also serving Ian's unique vision effectively. I saw the band on tour last year and they we're so fun and confident that it blew me away. Mr. Svenonius was sporting an amazing white suit too, how he keeps that shit so pristine on tour is beyond me. Anyone familiar with Chain's previous outing ('Down With Liberty...Up With Chains') will find this instantly accessible and fun. I'm sure you'll also note the increased confidence and competence of Ian and the band. Too many great highlight here to single them all out but I'll mention a few... 'For Practical Purposes (I Love You)' is a winning doo-wop style effort that really hits the spot, as doe's the hard rock aping of 'Detroit Music' parts I and II. '(I've Got) Privilege' (which came out as a 7" a while back) is a instant Make-Up-esque winner and the laid back irony of 'It's A Hard Job (Keeping Everybody High)' will no doubt bring a smile to your face but the best of the bunch lyrically has to be 'Music's Not For Everyone', a spacious psych-out with a sentiment that totally resonates for me. It's worth quoting actually....''....Do people who listen to music even like it? Do people deserve it even if they buy it? Music Is Not For everyone. Music is for the few, for the brave. Don't try to explain it to them though, It doesn't matter what you say. They can't understand. They'll never understand'. It's rare for music to be this witty and still being good. The lad's not lost it. Can't wait for the next tour.
