Seemingly the only person in the world to actively dislike KC's collab with John Hopkins it's going to be hard for me to drum up much enthusiasm here, his music does absolutely nothing for me and this record isn't going to change matters.

The lead track is a chirpy, breezy bit of Scottish pop that has the lyrical feel of Arctic Monkeys' 'I Bet She Looks Good on the Dancefloor' with the exact same end of chorus reference to 1984. Better is the second track 'Near Star Pole Star' which has the King singing over a completely different song by Jennifer Gordon and it works quite nicely. Third track 'Single Cheep' rolls along in a kind of country and western lollop with awful, unforgiveable guitar solo in tow. 'Little Man' the closer starts promisingly but once the singing kicks in turns into a bar room knockabout.

I'm sure this will be all over Radio 6 and that it will please his legion of fans but it frustrates the hell out of me that there are so many great records released, week after week, ignored by everyone and this is the type of stuff that has risen to the top. It's a strange world.
