Their best album from quite a long time !
I think I'm in the minority by rather liking Winchester Cathedral a lot.
The free single Tusk was a bit rubbish do didn't bode well for this. What is it like?
darker than the last 2.
but I really dig this band. Eclectic without going over the deep end. A few months back I predicted Clinic would be The Most Likely To Put Out The Next Classic Album. So at least I've got a chance here because my predictions for the California Lottery are really going no where *sigh*
but I tend to agree about each album to being not as good as the one before.
But the new one is the best since 'internal wrangler'.
I still think I prefer Walking with Thee to the new one, but I've only listened to it a handful of times so far. It's definitely better than Winchester Cathedral though.
I think the real problem with Clinic is that they're trying to advance their music mainly by tinkering with the production rather than the songwriting. They did try lots of songwriting tricks on Internal Wrangler, which is why it's so wildly inconsistent but also why it produced Second Line which (IMHO) they still haven't equalled.
got on with anything except Internal Wrangler
I will try the new one
derivative of themselves. even the best tunes sounds exactly like internal wrangler
