They’re now stuck in a tricky hinterland between the teen thrills of scuzzy guitars and a sort of faux-rebel music for middle managers’ commutes. There’s a constant cloak of restraint on Ignore The Ignorant and that’s patently not a positive thing for a band like The Cribs. It’s all a bit tasteful. »

the limited version comes with a bonus dvd featuring the making of the album documentary. 'ignore the ignorant' is the fourth album from the cribs. the effort is their first with relatively new addition guitarist johnny marr (the smiths, modest mouse). the album was produced and mixed by nick launay (arcade fire / nick cave). much like their latest work, 'men's needs, women's needs, whatever', the foursome of ryan jarman (vocals, guitar), gary jarman (bass, vocals) ross jarman (drums) and johnny marr (guitar) lends nonchalant quips and quick guitar play to draw each song to the next.
