  1. Like so much of Gene's fine back catalogue, this is an album about the ways in which love can buckle you under and life can break you down, options closing in like the walls of an Indiana Jones dungeon.
  2. Gene have found a soulful and reflective edge that's brought them close to matching the grace and guile promised by their debut, and best album, Olympian.
  3. Libertine, their new album, won't make anyone throw away their copies of Parklife, The Queen Is Dead or What's the Story (Morning Glory), but it is considerably better than one would expect.
