  1. This smart if self-conscious album makes it clear who the Lips would like to be, but it's hard to tell who they really are.
  2. It means that the album’s instantly accessible and familiar to anyone who’s ever smoked a cigarette, flipped the bird to The Man or nailed the pastor’s daughter in the churchyard; but is subject to the law of diminishing returns which kicks in every time the fuck-you teen persona is reincarnated.

    For once, such a retrogressive and deconstructive approach is strangely thrilling. [May 2009, p.104]

    Pithy stompers such as 'Short Fuse' and 'Drugs' tell their own story, but the spooked death rattle of 'The Drop I Hold' is at least proof that the experimental mind-set of 2007's " Good Bad Not Evil" wasn't a one-off. [May 2009, p.107]

    They are doing some smart rock n roll. This should be recognized.

    I didn't like this album at first. I love the black lips and thought that good bad etc. was a great album. This isn't the same I didn't like this album at first. I love the black lips and thought that good bad etc. was a great album. This isn't the same thing as that. It's a different album altogether, but good in it's own right. "Elijah" is great, the "drop i hold" is hard as shit and the secret track at the end is also very good. Take my advice, give this album a go. Full Review »
