Released: June 2006
The sirens blared, the harmonies popped with engergised urgency, the verses were the sonic equivalent of Burroughs' stateless city. The chorus was a different matter entirely, as the band shifted the KLF-esque rave down in favour of a messy, grot rock doom-down that had more in common with Test Icicles' messy jam/meltdowns than anything involving green lasers or unironic neon. It felt like an effortless, on-the-money evocation of genre barriers melting down into one multi-coloured mass of beauty. (PE)

It's finally here and thank Christ, it's nothing like the album it could have been. Yay for slave-driving major labels!
