If _Lets Get Killed_ was an ode to New York, then _Bow Down Before the Exit Sign_ is David Holmes’ ode to 70s soul, rock and funk. His cover of "Compared to What" lays on the bass thick as molasses, while on "Sick City," he gets his rock on with Bobby Gillespie. Jon Spencer brings his blues to "Bad Thing," while chaos reigns on "Incite a Riot." "69 Police" pulls things back together, and Martina Topley-Bird lends her vocals to the densely dark "Outrun." She returns on "Zero Tolerance" which thrashes about a bit more. Holmes takes a breather with "Hey Lisa," a sweet, string-laced groover, and "Jackson Johnson" brings the album to a close along the same vibe. Quite a departure, but an interesting one.
