  • Summary: The second album for the rock band led by Jon McClure was produced by Jagz Kooner.

  1. Positive: 2 out of 7

  1. 80
    This second is a well-crafted collection that finds McClure pondering his place in a rotten world. [Aug 2009, p.102]
  2. In the final reckoning, a solid album is raised a bar by its direct communication, illustrated by the closing 'Hard Time For Dreamers.'
  3. 60
    McClure has since retracted his retirement outburst, and rightly so: a third attempt might make him a contender. [Aug 2009, p.95]
  4. Mostly, Jon McLure's against Bad Stuff and in favour of Good Stuff, as well as being dead keen on 90s sounding dance-rock.
  5. The Makers' second album is little but clumsily scribbled know-yer-enemy style juvenilia.
  6. A French Kiss In The Chaos is neither artistically interesting nor indeed very good.
  7. The big-beated momentum of yore is bogged down in McClure's new graceless Gallagher sneer and left to stagnate by a band more interested in re-heating anaemic Kasabian-esque psychedelia than building a plinth from which to preach.
