    I was pretty disappointed in this album. I liked their first two so much, but I had a hard time finding anything that stuck out on this one. Die-hard fans of the band will probably find something they like, but other than that, skip this one.

    An absolute mess. It has its moments (ie Cup of Coffee, Parade, Drive You Home, Like a Rose...) but overall: their worst album to date.

  1. The sound of a band blissfully uncoiling under the sun of self-assurance.
  2. Gone are the likes of 'Queer' or 'Subhuman', there's no ummph or intelligence. In straining to achieve a smarter, more mature album the band have created the most tawdry epitaph possible.
