Album Review

There couldn't have been any doubt over a lead single from This Is Normal — "Ladyshave" is an instant winner, a distorted organ/shuffle beat combination calling to mind the Charlatans' underrated second album Between 10th and 11th. GusGus has bigger fish to fry, though, with Daniel Agust's usual deceptively cool delivery making a great contrast to the warmth of the music, though every so often he bursts through with just enough soul.

Hate" reappears unchanged from This Is Normal to close things up.
