Jesus Christ, what a cringefest. One of the most unbearable albums I've ever heard.
it is indeed truly awful.
I can only guess that they did the deal before hearing the album.
i'm really amazed it got released at all. its unbearable. musically shocking but even more odd is the sound quality. the cd sounds like a load of very low quality mp3s.
The Black Ships album... (McCabe and Si Jones) - it's due later this year and I'm sure that will be much more worthy of our time than Ashcroft's Messiah complex posturing nonsense.
and has just got ever worse as the years go by.
Is he still singing about things "in mah maaaahnd?"
also, heard several tracks of this when it was on 6 the other day.
it was a bit like listening to a Flight of the COnchords parody of Richard ashcroft at times.
me ignore 6music all day lest I accidentally listened to a track. Very poor, but not really surprising...
