  1. Thing is, most of the songs on West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum, while never outright abhorrent on their own, just aren’t tight enough to keep from being devoured by all the sonic excess.

    "Fire" is the best track this band have ever put down and has to be classed as an anthem now. Outside of that there are some good tracks but a"Fire" is the best track this band have ever put down and has to be classed as an anthem now. Outside of that there are some good tracks but a lot of it drifts along a bit aimlessly. You really need to give it a good few listens and I'm not sure if it's really worth putting the time into it.

    totally amazing, they become more sophisticated at lyrics and music, althought a little too mainstream for the band
