    What makes ‘A Picture of Good Health’ so vital is the unshakable sense that the gestation of LIFE’s firebrand formula has run parallel to the country’s political spiral. Now, they’re hitting their stride just as the Brexit void looms. Accordingly, this record is indispensable.

    A Picture of Good Health addresses issues more personal. And though predicated on personal experience, it’s a record that looks inwardly while projecting outwards, all the while letting listeners know that however on your own you might feel, someone somewhere has been through the same, and that you’re not alone, no matter how much it might seem like it.

    The follow-up to 2017's excellent debut Popular Music, A Picture of Good Health finds Hull, England four-piece LIFE at their most angrily buoyant.

    Mez Sanders' vocals aren't very melodic, and neither are Mick Sanders' guitars. But they are a compelling band regardless, and the rock-solid rhythm section is a pleasurable listen.

    Off-kilter energy, and their trademark honesty abound, LIFE - who received accolades such an ‘Album Of The Year’ listing from BBC Radio 1- prove with their second album that they are a quality band capable of making stand-out records more than once.
