B.P.B returns with what is a radical departure of a record. Eschewing his gentle softly softly catchy monkey take on downbeat melancholia for a harsh rocking sound that will please fans of Slayer and Fields Of The Nephilim...only joking, it's good for morale. This is B.P.B's two millionth album (this year) and while it is by all accounts a typically haunting, gently plucked wistful collection of songs that crawl rather than sprint into your subconscious, you do get the feeling of deja vu, when listening to it. Mebbe because I'm not the biggest B.P.B fan in the world, or mebbe because IT ALL SOUNDS THE SAME AND HAS DONE FOR AGES! I reckon the former is more applicable. The ten songs on this album tread familiar paths to varied degrees of success. My 'favourite' track on this LP are the sprawling “Black Captain” and the rather haunting “Cows”, which is as close as it gets to summat I found memorable. It's a record that is reliable and doesn't spring any surprises upon your merry bonce. As Lou Barlow once said ..”Same Old, Say Mould..”
