    The Leeds-launched provocateurs still sound sharp and lean. [May 2019, p.88]

    It's an album that sounds like society collapsing-its songs riddled with a disconcerting, unnerving uncertainty and a kind of apocalyptic anxiety, despite the vigor and confidence of the music itself. So while the Gang of Four of 2019 is very different to the Gang of Four that started in the late '70s, it seems the more things change, the more they stay the same.

    Andy Gill's guitar work is still distinctive and angular on tracks like "Toreador" and "Don't Ask Me," but the band seem intent on lending the old with the new. [May 2019, p.23]

    The distance from here to early triumphs Entertainment! and Solid Gold seems like a long one. [Jun 2019, p.112]

    Yet more caustic politico cold-funk disco grooves. [May 2019, p.96]
