    The splendid The Politics of Envy simply ratchets that process up a few notches.

    Stewart remains a firebrand intent on creating skull-splintering sounds and society-skewering words.

    It's Envy's quietest moment, a hazy cover of Bowie's Letter To Hermione, which is the real diamond in the rough here. [Apr 2012, p.105]

    Too much of The Politics of Envy sounds like the mid-'80s acts that glued British pop back together after bands like the Pop Group smashed it to bits.

    Maybe the problem with The Politics of Envy is that these tracks just sounded too good playing back on shiny studio monitors to a roomful of old friends. If he's struggling to say something about the wider world, maybe Stewart should consider a retreat into his own eccentric interior.
