    Their strongest set yet; an appealing amalgam of Nick Cave, Will Oldham and Joy Division.

  1. The objective was to make a fucking brilliant album where the mood is king, the delivery is queen and studied modern coolness is a jester that's one misplaced quip away from being the lion's breakfast. And, of course, they've succeeded.
  2. Melodies howl along before being ground down under the weight of distorted guitar. Strings float songs along, then scrabble against the flow.
  3. The sounds that pour forth from the teamwork of David Eugene Edwards, Jean-Yves Tola and co. echo another time so completely, that at times you might think these sounds were recovered, rather than newly created.
