    An odd vanity project that turned out better than anyone but the most besotted diehards would have expected.

    The kids aren’t alright as decades get mashed; conspiracy theories and misanthropy, leavened with wit, abound. A fantastic record. You auteur hear this.

    A bunker-born double (their second) that keeps on giving. [Nov 2022, p.74]

    [Luke Haines] has never been backed like this before. ... It's as if The WreckingCrew wound up on a Skip Spence album. [Nov 2022, p.91]

    Sounds a lot more like Haines yammering on about end-of-days cults while Buck ditches his customary Rickenbacker jingle-jangle for brute force Raw Power stormtrooping. [Nov 2022, p.29]

    No one who is a fan of Haines' previous work is likely to be disappointed with All the Kids Are Super Bummed Out, and he's fortunate to have found a collaborator in Peter Buck, who makes music as strong, idiosyncratic, and witty as the lyrics they support.
