    Yet another quality production from our friends Weatherall and above, agreed! Not a duff track in sight! Always been a firm Weatherall fan as DJ and producer...althought admittedly he did lose me a bit on the Sabresonics album. This is another quality piece of music from the chaps - imaginative samples and some great (almost hip-hop style) drumbeats layered with some incredibly addictive synths and rolling only disappointment is that they didn't stay in the studio and top this one up to full album length - 1 hour of this would make it a desert island disk.

      At little over 30 mins for 6 tracks, this perhaps in more like the mini-albums/ EPs that you expect from indie guitar bands than an album proper. In many ways, this ploughs a similar furrow to contemporary 2LS stuff like "A Bag of Blue Sparks" and the more recent "Tiny Reminders", yet it shouldn't be ignored and a solid piece of electronica. The opening 2 tracks merge seamlessly and set the trend for a dystopian soundtrack - imagine "Angel Heart" set in Newcastle! Stand outs are "Brother Foster..." & Bernard Sumner-sampling "It Hits" and title of the year surely must go to "Cloned Christ on a Hover Donkey (Be Thankful)" but in all honesty, not a duff track in sight.
