iTunes Review

This witty, smart powerhouse group chooses to work as a free agent, and its biting sarcasm—the predominant seasoning atop grinding guitars and combative drums—is remarkably on point. The Welsh band makes music that hums and throbs and gets the brain energized. It has gone from a trio to a quartet and put abrasive keyboards upfront to good effect. Singer Andy Falkous (formerly of the late, great Mclusky, as is drummer Jack Egglestone) is equally at home being dead serious as he is deadly funny. “I'll destroy the state/In my North Face fleece!” he threatens on the spastic, sarcastic “Sorry Dad, I Was Late for the Riots.” Elsewhere, his observations are simple and stinging: “Truth applies in both directions” and “Dumb is the new black” are opinions built from pretty solid evidence. From the blistering, white-hot “Sheena Is a T-Shirt Salesman” to the mechanical, precise build of “Failed Olympic Bid” and the knotty, Fall-like groove of “Notes on Achieving Orbit,” there are enough shades of rage here to both entertain and inspire for a long while.

High energy weirdness

Some of the best oddball song titles I've seen in a long time..

Thanks FoTL

Another amazing album. I purchased the vinyl but couldnt wait until shipping dates so I ordered this and am glad I did. I don't mind paying 2 times for an album. Especially when it's this good. Great job guys and next time, don't make me wait so long for new music!

The only downfall to the album is the inconsistency in quality. Some songs seem to be waaaaaay better recorded whereas others such as the 3 bonus tracks and "goals in slow motion" seem to be lacking in it. "goals in slow" honestly sounds like 1 mic put in a room and that's it. So the downfall is the fact that I can't blast this record in my car without feeling like the speakers are falling apart. In fact I can't really blast it at all. Which is a major downfall for me. Overall it's still a great record that continues to grow and grow and manifest itself on me.

the futures so bright

This band is awesome this album is awesome if you wanna be awesome too buy this.( and tell your friends!) the keyboards add another layer of craziness that compliments the great drumming and fuzzed out gut rumbling basslines just check it out already.

Scrappy Welsh noise rock trio Mclusky was one of the bright spots in the British indie scene's post-Brit-pop hangover, releasing three appealingly noisy albums -- 2000's My Pain and Sadness Is More Sad and Painful Than Yours, 2002's Mclusky Do Dallas, and 2005's The Difference Between Me and You Is That I'm Not on Fire -- before an acrimonious split in 2005, apparently due to intra-band tensions related to an incident on the trio's 2004 American tour when the band's van and equipment were stolen....
