8/10 Brian Staff review, 05 October 2012

Hmmmm. This is the kind of indie I’d have adored as kid. TMB are apparently from Leeds and do the scratchy tub-thumping jangle pop of old, late ‘80s style, Malcolm Eden/Morrissey/twat out of Gene-esque vocals...you know the score. The singer sounds northern and sensitive and has a real appeal with his bright and heartfelt lyrics, the band bash cheerily though several songs that would have sounded wonderful and flighty handled with a lighter touch but tragically suffer from the over-amped, bolshy and lumpen production that makes it all sound a little like The Crips courtesy of the singer from...you guessed it, this isn’t bloody rocket science.

So Jryan [sic]...is he fucking grooming them? They write much better songs than that there Bloods from t’Wakey but I’m not here to start a West Yorkshire musical turf war, haha. Just this “finish” takes lots of the brittle charm and appeal of their earlier singles away (for me) and it all sounds a bit ham-fisted but then, this is the diggedy-diggedy twenty-teens and I’m over 40 so what do I know? The Veronica Falls album sounded sterile too, must be the sound the radio wants for MAX impact and subconscious infiltration? That’s why they still deserve a four, the songs are great examples of something pure and earthy you don’t find so easily in this sterile fame-hungry world. Nil Points for Ryan however. ;0)
