  1. ‘Think I Need It Too’, the best thing they’ve done in ages. And yet, much as we want to love it, the rest is a pulled punch.
  2. Ultimately, The Fountain is an echo of an echo, inessential to all but the band's most devoted followers.
  3. Their most accessible offering in a long time sees Ian McCulloch at his most lyrically ­playful and cocksure, hovering between confessional ("I cried a fountain dry") and mischievous, and firing off one-liners as if it were the band's 80s heyday.
