  1. Ultimately, Men’s Needs… is brighter, sharper and just plain better than anything The Cribs have produced to date.
  2. There's absolutely nothing indecisive (or indeed shit) about this album. It's swaggering, full-throttle, full-throated genius.

    There are many good tracks here, the first four in particular, but I much preferred 'The New Fellas'. That album was packed with fantastic song-writing (mostly scorning the lame, generic indie scene in the uk) and riotous energy. They've maintained the biting attitude on Men's Needs... but this album isn't anywhere near as fun. Solid listen nonetheless and, yes, still miles better than dross like The Pigeon Detectives.
