Album Review: The Airborne Toxic Event - 'All At Once'

Their game should be over, unfortunately they're holding on for dear life

Shocker! The long-awaited (it says here) follow-up to a sublimely average debut is another half-arsed muppet show executed with the charisma of a terminally ill sloth. Singer Mikel groans and splutters like a man performing something my – ahem – mate’s last girlfriend dubbed ‘thirsty dog cunnilingus’.

Then again, this lot probably can’t be bothered to engage in that practice, either. Don’t just take our word for it – go download ‘Numb’, indie-rock stadium baiting so deeply uninspiring you would need to send a SWAT team down to Ineptitude just to drag it within sniping range of Decent Music. I’m too old for this, and so are they.
