8/10 Brian Staff review, 24 March 2011
CD singles. What is the bloody point? Who the hell buys these things? Ah! You! Well if you like these things (10 minutes of music on a disc that can hold 80) then you should get this one cos it's very good & isn't by The Manic Street Preachers which is the only band I can think of that still releases CD singles. That is a joke, not a very good one, sorry! For Against persist in producing glacial new wave style music along the lines of The Lines (see what I did there??) or early Cure and they do it really well indeed on this new single . It sounds authentic, energised & taut with a thrilling sense of minimal dynamism. The second track has an almost ethereal guitar & a lighter, more propulsive edge. It's a sound forged from the past but this track 'Dark Good Friday' is quite excellent & rather affecting, featuring ecstatic chinks of light that permeate to the doom. Concluding with 'Amen Yves (White Circles)' this three piece continue with their compulsive take on brittle, melodic post-punk exploration with a deep, cyclic atmospheric finish. It's almost dream-rock in places. They're really quite good these lads and so they should be, they've been at it for donkeys years, amassing a small but committed following.
