  1. It still defiantly goes against the grain, but also explodes with immediate, attention-grabbing riffs.

    Dull, meaningless 3-chord rubbish. Only way to describe this album, truly awful. How much are they paying NME to keep promoting them? They only have one memorable song, 2007's Men's Needs, anyone who says different is delusional. Full Review »

    By far the bands most advanced, yet still immediate, album. Like a more progressive 'Pinkerton', or a more tuneful 'In Utero', this album expands on everything that makes The Cribs one of the best of their generation. Full Review »
