Shaun William Ryder once of Happy Mondays and Black Grape but now also known for UFO Documentaries, "I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here' and having teeth not quite as white as former bandmate Bez. Unlike Bez, Ryder is again making new music and this appears to be the first fruits. His distinctive gutteral bark is intact on these tracks produced by who is the nephew of Quincy Jones no less.

8/10 Customer review, 19th June 2015

Almost 30 years after The Happy Mondays debut and after many cringeworthy TV show appearances. Shaun William Ryder is a man who shouldn't be relevant in 2015. However, Close the Dam is a track that hits you with a beat that makes you dance and lyrics that insist that you singalong.

The B side has the sound of the Happy Mondays last album. As with that album this track is good but lacks a bit of magic to make it a favourite.

Close the Dam is a return to form for Madchesters godfather.
