All credit to Six.By Seven for the superb start to this album. In 'So Close' they have produced a majestic gem that owes just as much to the psychedelic organ swell as their usually loud guitar work. 'I.O.U. Love' is also excellent; a swirling guitar pattern and a relentless, urgent energy so typical of this Nottingham band's best work. It's a bit harsh to say that thereafter everything's a disappointment but, much like previous album 'The Closer You Get', there seem to be too many basic punk songs like 'Speed Is In, Speed Is Out' and 'Flypaper For Freaks'; they perform this style better than most but it's frustrating to listen to when they are capable of such great, original moments. 'American Beer' goes some way to redress the balance as singer Chris Olley switches back to world weary mode as opposed to struggling to be heard above an infernal racket. Flashes of genius are still very much in evidence but the now, slimmed-down four piece band are still struggling to emulate the wonders of their debut.
