Album Review: Art Brut - 'Brilliant! Tragic!'
When you're Art Brut, your eccentricity shouldn't be controlled
On ‘Brilliant! Tragic!’ all the usual themes crop up – loving Axl Rose, feeling sexy, the Republic of Sealand – but there’s something strangely self-conscious about it all, like the way that Argos is trying to drum up, Big Brother-style, ever-stranger ideas, but without quite believing in them. We still love them, for all their eccentric faults – but it seems that maybe they’ve begun to realise it too.
