The drums thankfully hit harder than they did on ‘Allelujah! Don’t Bend! Ascend!, but this – their shortest record; their record with the most filler; their first record of new material in a decade – suggests that they’re running out of ideas. Other than “Peasantry”‘s menace to triumph, there isn’t anything evocative about any of this, or if it is evocative, it’s the same thing they’ve been evoking for two decades now but worse. The counterpoint between the descending guitar and string section turning more and more buoyant of “Piss Crowns Are Trebled” from 5:53 – 6:53 is the album’s best mais c’est tout.
