"Joe Johnson (bass), Jon Kirby Newman (guitar, vocals), Martin Reinsel (drums) and Stefan Zillioux (guitar, vocals) once again opt for an unpolished mix of influences such as the Velvet Underground, Canned Heat, The Jesus on their latest album. & Mary Chain, Neil Young and the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. Raw and sometimes very oppressive.
It opens with the gritty, vicious rocker Get It Together . A garage blues song with unpolished riffs and languid vocals. This is followed by the dirty abrasive riffs of Jailhouse Limp . In the sultry Traveler you will encounter psychedelic blues influences a la Canned Heat. Lazily swaying with an unpolished edge.
Storm's Coming takes you in an intoxicating way in a Jesus & Mary Chain-like manner. World On Fire is a burning fuzz rocker in which you encounter the sound of Neil Young & Crazy Horse.
After the scrappy swaying My Love, Oceans once again sounds intoxicating and sultry with the message “come on fuckers, show me the way, come on you devils kneel down and pray to the oceans of rain”. You Ain't Shit is a gritty variation on the Bo Diddley beat. Dirty and angular at his Jon Spencer best. Wired To Rust has a high Blue Cheer-like fuzz content, which is mixed with a Sonic Youth-like impetuosity.
Manimal Farm is the acoustic closing track of the album. An instrumental with a cozy fireplace and bizarre animal sounds.
It is my Duty To Warn you that with this album you are getting an intense and gritty album!..."
