    Ok its a good record: but Hefner have so failed to live up to the enormous expectations generated by Breaking God's Heart, that they should be considered utter failures by comparison. So if you want to try a Hefner record, buy that one, not this one!.

    This is not parochial and not pub rock; its a beautifully ironic, ambiguous, humerous and desperate paen to THEIR kind of love and if you dont get with it then you are a tired hoary old mind-addled rocker who would be stroking his "mojo" every day were it not for his stodgy wife. That or a stupid nu-metaller.

  1. Attention to detail particularly benefits the lush and endearing "Good Fruit," the rare track wherein lovelorn earnestness replaces self-conscious repartee.
  2. A seedily romantic, kitchen-sink paean to London, We Love The City finds Hefner's previously wan guitar stylings given a coat of production lustre.
  3. Once again, Hefner has delivered what is sure to be one of the most original releases of the year.
