Album Review: Fight Like Apes - 'The Body Of Christ And The Legs Of Tina Turner'
Losing sight of their youthful days and not yet fully fledged with grown-up emotionMore on Fight Like Apes
It’d take a stony soul to stifle a snort at the straight-faced smuggling of lines like “my well-read friends inform me that I was a cunt” on the furious [b]‘Pull Off Your Arms And Let’s Play In Your Blood’[/b]. Compared to past efforts, though, a teary weariness seems to dominate, as on [b]‘Thank God You Weren’t Thirsty (Lightbulb)’[/b] with its howls of “I tried to turn you on”.
The album lacks that bouncy, bratty energy of old, while never really nailing a more grown-up emotional register. Even so, glad that they’re still there.
