5/10 Clinton Staff review, 04 July 2014

There is just no stopping them is there. They simply never stop. I’ve wanted them to stop since their very first single but it never ever happens. But now they are cuddly rock veterans they have the media in the palm of their hands and its been a long, long time since they wished AIDS and death on people. All forgotten now.

This is the swift follow up to last years mellow and sometimes Dexy’s ish ‘Rewind the Film’. Much has been made of its German/kraut-rock influences and there they are on the inner sleeve looking all serious. Yet despite the addition of some rather grand synths and the requisite gospel choir drafted in on ‘Lets Go To War’ its just as shit and clunky as all their other records.

Its a funny world where this is touted not just as the obligatory return to form but a late career experimental classic. However, I’m not taken in my some doom laden chords, edgily distorted vocals and the brittlest of 'post-punk' influences. They must think we are all daft.
