"This is an honest world where “man’s needs are found on greed” (‘Men’s Needs’), where people “drag up ancient history” (‘Ancient History’) and you can “fall in love so hard you wish you were dead..." (

"Johnny Marr described the three Jarman brothers (Ryan, Gary and Ross) as a combination of the Buzzcocks and Johnny Thunders, but perhaps the latter is there more for his world-weary spirit, found here in abundance. There is something of Kurt Cobain’s rasp in vocals to the chorus of the current single, “Men’s Needs.” Other obvious stand-outs include the ranting “Our Bovine Public” and the anthemic “Girls Like Mystery”, but the band’s combination of the playful and the challenging ensures that things get increasingly weird as the album goes on. The production is clear and effective, marrying layers of droning, buzzing and stinging guitars to vocals that grow stronger as the album presses on, and lyrics that grow richer on repeated listening; there is a real sense of progression and no shortage of excursions into art-rock territory, but the band’s forte probably remains the catch-laden punk pop song with the short sharp stop."
