From the opening track Scroobius Pip gives us his neatly woven lyrics with social angst and wonderful poetry. This is a wonderful first look into the world of dan le sac and Scroobius Pip and anyone who has seen them live will testify that it is not just in the studio that they excel.
The highlights for me include the ode to Tommy Cooper and a beautiful life in Tommy C; Thou Shalt Always Kill; the Beat that my heart skipped; and the Magicians Assistant. But there is not a bad track on this album and after 2 years of solid listening it still sounds fresh and inspiring.
Letter from God To Man and the excellent use of Radiohead’s Planet Telex is for me the pick of the bunch. Initially some whinced at the use of the Radiohead song but so cleverly done and so much depth to the arangement.
I found the music infectious and the lyrics superb, putting across thought provoking comment mixed with a contemporary forum.
This goes down as a great album to to be revered in the years to come.
