    ... where Frank Black's production meets Art Brut's edgy, spiky punk. Not a perfect album by any stretch of the imagination, but the highlights outweigh the lowpoints in both potency and frequency. A raw, exciting (if somewhat flawed) album which will please fans of both Art Brut and Frank Black.

  1. They may be eternal adolescents, but they're also true believers in what made rock & roll great in the first place. They won't hide--can't hide--that enthusiasm, and it's contagious on Art Brut vs. Satan.
  2. Art Brut haven’t made the record that’ll reverse their gradual slide back towards cult. But they have at least made the one that’ll make the cult even more fervent.

    The erstwhile pixies preacher takes compliant care of Art Brut's ludicrous good name--rock-fanboy allusions and cheeky declaratives are well repped.
