    Utterly brilliant return to form. Classic cult sound brought bang up to date. Rock at its very best. Standout tracks for me are:

    Honey From a Knife
    Elemental Light
    The Wolf
    For The Animals
    Every Man and Woman is a Star

    Elemental Light is on permanent repeat in the car. Very cinematic.

    Choice of Weapon is absurd, brilliant and stupidly good fun. [Jun 2012, p.100]

    It's a stunning return to form from a band whose best years, until now, had looked to be behind them. [26 May 2012, p.54]
