Reverend And The Makers - '@Reverend_Makers'
Rev’s reaction to no-one ruddy listening
6 / 10 Having tried to stuff right-minded but clunky ‘George Bush = BAD’ politics down our throats with his last albums as side-project Mongrel and with the Makers themselves, this is Rev’s reaction to no-one ruddy listening. Happily, while we were expecting an opus about how the coalition government’s really lame, he’s delivered a relentless bosh-pop thump that’s more ‘Bonkers’ than bonkers. Most of it, from the vein-tingle rave-grind of ‘Bassline’, to the disco strings of ‘Out Of The Shadows’, to the ’90s big beat of ‘Shine The Light’, is a riot. Actually, riots: that’s what we thought he was going to write an opus about. Thank God he didn’t.
