    not bad at all.....if you like early U2, the chameleons, and bauhaus pick it up - you could do worse

  1. This is the debut record of the year so far, which has effectively raised the bar by which other bands will be judged in the future.
  2. As with other really good bands in this genre (such as Franz Ferdinand and Interpol) it transcends being just a mere mash of influences.
  3. Dirty Words' accomplishment lies in its superficiality: its pristine, immaculate finish.
